  • The effects of environment on radio-loud AGN activity in Stripe 82 

    Kolwa, Sthabile (University of the Western Cape, 2016)
    We investigate the link between environment and radiative accretion efficiency using a sample of 8946 radio-loud AGN detected at 1 − 2 GHz in the SDSS Stripe 82 region. We quantify their environments using the surface-density ...
  • Measuring the quasar luminosity function below the detection threshold 

    Malefahlo, Eliab (University of the Western Cape, 2016)
    The radio emission of radio-quiet active galactic nuclei (AGN) is thought to be from star formation and AGN related emission. I investigate these sources using 1.4 GHz radio data from FIRST and three optical quasars samples ...
