Life Cycles of Radio Galaxies
An International Workshop
July 15 - 17, 1999.
Space Telescope Science Institute
Baltimore, MD, USA
The aim of this meeting is to provide a forum
for debate about the births, lives and deaths of radio galaxies
and related objects, from
both observational and theoretical viewpoints.
Keynote questions to be addressed:
- What is different about the host galaxies (normal vs. active
and radio-loud vs. radio quiet)? What does this tell us
about the trigger mechanism?
- Can we realistically model the development of Radio Galaxies over
their lifetimes (e.g., how well do we know their environments; how
does the "efficiency" evolve)?
How can existing models be checked by observations?
- What sets the limit on the ages of the Radio Galaxies that we see?
- What is the relation between FR I and FR II radio galaxies?
- What is the duty cycle of jet activity, and what do recurrent
outbursts tell us about the AGN?
There will be ample opportunity for discussion.
