The FIR-radio correlation of Wolf-Rayet galaxies and the role of star formation in LINERs.

Abstract (from CDS):

We find that a preliminary classification of LINERs' energetics may be made in terms of the FIR-radio correlation of Wolf-Rayet galaxies. The AGN- or starburst-supported LINERs can be distinguished by their FIR-to-radio ratio, Q=L(1.4GHz)/L(60µm)> or <0.01. It is interesting to note that almost all the LINERs with inner rings might be starburst-supported, indicating reduced AGN activities compared with those of the AGN-supported ones. We also find that a shock-heating phase for the warm dust component might be important for some starbursts at the burst age of ≥107yr, with Q<0.001.
