The Radio Emission of Interacting Galaxies

Extract

Gravitational interaction is a straightforward interpretation of some of the peculiar optical morphologies shown by galaxies. There have also been attempts to study the effects of a gravitational interaction on the radio continuum emission. Statistically, the central radio sources (inner 1 kpc) in interacting spiral galaxies are about three times stronger than in isolated spirals; on the other hand, the intensity of the extended emission does not seem to be affected (Stocke, 1978; Hummel, 1981). Peculiar radio morphologies are not a general property of interacting galaxies, since in the complete sample studied by Hummel (1981) of spirals with a probability ≥0.8 of being physically related to their companion, less than 5% have a peculiar radio morphology.
