Relativistic Beaming Models and VLBI Observations of A Complete Sample of Radio Sources

Extract

We have conducted a systematic study of the milliarcsecond structure of a complete, flux-density limited sample of strong radio sources selected at 5 GHz. We have made 5 GHz maps at two epochs of the 45 compact sources in the sample, and third-epoch observations are in progress. Our intention was to explore the full range of morphologies exhibited by compact radio sources, to search for new superluminal sources, and to determine how widespread such phenomena as parsec-scale jets, alignment of parsec-scale and kiloparsec-scale jets, and superluminal motion are. In addition, we hoped to use this well-defined sample for statistical tests of the beaming theories.
