The environment of radio sources in the VLA-COSMOS survey field.

Abstract (from CDS):

Several problems with the process of galaxy formation are still open. One of them is the role played by active galactic nuclei (AGNs) phenomena in galaxy build-up and, in particular, in quenching star formation (SF). On the other hand, the theory of AGN formation predicts that these phenomena are correlated with the host-galaxy environment, therefore opening links among SF quenching, environment and AGN phenomena in galaxy formation, and the evolution paradigm. This work focuses on the correlations among environmental density, radio AGN presence and the probability that a galaxy hosts a radio AGN. Using data from the photometric COSMOS survey and its radio 1.4GHz follow-up (VLA-COSMOS), a sample of radio AGNs has been defined. The environment was studied using the richness distributions inside a parallelepiped with base side of 1 Mpc and height proportional to the photometric redshift precision. Richness distributions were compared as a function of both the redshift and the relative evolution of the stellar masses of galaxies and AGN hosts up to z=2. Radio AGNs are always located in environments that are significantly richer and denser than those around galaxies in which radio emission is absent, so the environment seems to enhance the probability of a galaxy hosting a radio AGN. Moreover, a distinction between high-power and low-power radio AGNs leads to the conclusion that the significance of the environmental effect is only maintained for low-power radio sources. By studying the evolution of stellar masses, it is possible to conclude that radio AGN presence is a phenomenon related to quiescent galaxies up to z=2, with a significant increase in the fraction of quiescent galaxies hosting a radio AGN with decreasing redshift. Hints of an environmental effect are present as well. The results found with this work lead to concluding that denser environments play a significant role in enhancing the probability that a galaxy hosts a radio AGN and, in particular, low-power ones.

within radius arcsec The VizieR photometry tool allows for easy visualization of photometry points extracted around the Simbad position from photometry-enabled catalogues in VizieR.
The search radius has to be specified by the user. It is currently limited to a maximum of 30 arcsec. It depends mostly on the precision or quality of the coordinates (SIMBAD and VizieR catalogs), the resolution of the images from which the sources were extracted, source extent, and source crowding.
Suggestions are: crowded field: 0.5 to 1.5 arcsec, 3 arcsec otherwise; uncertain coordinates (SIMBAD quality E or coordinates without reference): 5 to 30 arsec (risky!).
