The environments of the radio galaxy population in SIMBA

  title={The environments of the radio galaxy population in SIMBA},
  author={Nicole Thomas and Romeel A. Dav'e},
We investigate the environmental properties of the radio galaxy population using the Simba cosmological hydrodynamic simulation. We identify centrals and satellites from a population of high and low excitation radio galaxies (HERGs and LERGs) in Simba, and study their global properties. We find that ∼20% of radio galaxies are satellites and that there are insignificant differences in the global properties of LERGs based on its central/satellite classification. Satellite HERGs display lower…

We examine the 1.4GHz radio luminosities of galaxies arising from star formation and active galactic nuclei (AGN) within the state-of-the-art cosmological hydrodynamic simulation Simba. Simba grows
