Abstract Category : Plenary
Abstract : Relativistic jets from AGNs are an important driver of feedback in galaxies with an active black hole. They impact the nearby environment over different physical scales during their lifetime, with varying effects. They first interact with the host galaxy's ISM before breaking out to larger scales, significantly affecting the galaxy's morphology and evolution. I shall present the results of our recent 3D relativistic magneto-hydrodynamic simulations, performed on scales of several kpc, of AGN jets interacting with the ambient ISM and CGM. The young relativistic jets initially couple strongly with the turbulent ISM, before breaking out to larger scales. Such high resolution zoom in simulations are ideal for comparing the theoretical simulations with spatially resolved observations of such jet-ISM interactions. I will present the expected observable features predicted from our simulations for different emission mechanisms such as photo-ionisation from the AGN, emission from shocked gas and non-thermal synchrotron emission.
