Orientation of the cores of hybrid morphology radio sources
The FRI/FRII dichotomy is a much debated issue in the astrophysics of extragalactic radio sources. Study of the properties of HYbrid MOrphology Radio Sources (HYMORS) may bring crucial informationExpand
X-Ray Properties of the Gigahertz Peaked and Compact Steep Spectrum Sources
We present Chandra X-ray Observatory observations of gigahertz peaked-spectrum (GPS) and compact steep spectrum (CSS) radio sources. The Chandra sample contains 13 quasars and 3 galaxies, withExpand
We report the Chandra discovery of an X-ray cluster at redshift z = 1.063 associated with the Compact Steep Spectrum radio loud quasar 3C 186 (Q0740+380). Diffuse X-ray emission is detected out to �Expand
Properties of CSS radio sources from 102 MHz interplanetary scintillation observations
Interplanetary scintillation observations of 56 compact steep-spectrum radio sources have been carried out at 102 MHz on the Large Phased Array, Russia. Observations have shown that 42 sources haveExpand
Collimation of extragalactic radio jets in compact steep-spectrum and larger sources
We study the collimation of radio jets in the high-luminosity Fanaroff–Riley class II sources by examining the dependence of the sizes of hotspots and knots in the radio jets on the overall size ofExpand
Physical conditions in steep-spectrum radio sources
Interplanetary scintillation observations of the radio sources 4C 31.04, 3C 67, 4C 34.07, 4C 34.09, OE 131, 3C 93.1, OF 247, 3C 147, 3C 173, OI 407, 4C 68.08, 3C186, 3C 190, 3C 191, 3C 213.1, 3C 216,Expand
ROSAT X-ray observations of 3CRR radio sources
Over half the 3CRR sample of radio galaxies and quasars has been observed in X-rays with ROSAT pointed observations, and we present results from these observations, discussing many of the sources inExpand
Bilateral symmetry in active galaxies
Abstract The bilateral symmetry around active galaxies was discovered in the radio continuum in the 1950s. It has since been found to manifest itself throughout the electromagnetic spectrum in theExpand
Relativistic jets and the nature of BL Lacertae objects
Abstract BL Lacertae objects are an extreme form of Active Galactic Nuclei characterized by rapid variability, high polarization, a compact radio structure, and weak emission lines. Most of theseExpand
A systematic asymmetry in the polarization properties of double radio sources with one jet
It has long been a puzzle why high-luminosity extragalactic radio sources, which are symmetric in many respects, have jets on one side only1.The jets may be intrinsically asymmetric, becauseExpand
