Classical and Relativistic Conservation of Momentum Flux in Radio-Galaxies

  •  Lorenzo Zaninetti    


A new set of laws of motion for turbulent jets propagating in an intergalactic medium characterized by a decreasing density is derived by applying conservation of momentum flux both in the classical and relativistic framework. Two characteristic features of radio-galaxies, such as oscillations and curvature, are modeled by a classical helicoidal jet. A third feature of a radio-galaxy, the appearance of knots, is explained as an effect due to the theory of images.
