On the entrainment of line-emitting clouds by jets in active galaxies.


Abstract (from CDS):

We consider the process of entrainment of the line-emitting clouds by jets in domains of narrow-line emitting regions in Seyfert and radio- galaxies. In our model the clouds penetrate the jet perpendicular to the jet's axis. Several regimes of entrainment are possible. They mostly depend on the value of the "entrainment parameter" ε=tcr/tent, where tcr is the cloud-jet crossing time and tent is the entrainment time. Comparing our calculations with observations, we infer that regimes of ε≪1 and ε≫1 are possibly realised in some astrophysical objects.
