1:30 pm:
Thesis Defense in Physics Tate 301-20
Speaker: Brian J. O'Neill, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Minnesota
Subject: Simulations of Narrow-Angle Tail Radio Galaxy Evolution and Shock Interactions
This is the public portion of Mr. O'Neill's PhD Dissertation Defense

We present the results of three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations
of radio galaxy (RG) outflows interacting with active galaxy cluster environments.
The goal of these simulations was to analyze the consequences of these interactions such that observations of cluster radio emission can provide a more effective proxy for understanding the dynamical states of intracluster media (ICM).
