The cosmic evolution of massive galaxies and radio-loud AGN: Elaine Sadler Colloquium
In recent years, it has become clear that the evolution of galaxies and their central supermassive black holes are closely linked. Galaxy evolution models in which heating by a radio-loud AGN prevents late-time star formation in massive galaxies have also become increasingly popular with theorists. The combination of large-area radio continuum and optical redshift surveys provides a powerful tool for studying the co-evolution of massive galaxies and their active nuclei, and I will present some recent results based on radio-detected galaxies in the 6dFGS (z<0.1) and 2SLAQ LRG (0.4<z<0.8) redshift surveys.
