Journal Article
Gordon, Y. A., Pimbblet, K. A., Kaviraj, S., Owers, M. S., O'Dea, C. P., Walmsley, M., …Pierce, J. C. (2019). The effect of minor and major mergers on the evolution of low excitation radio galaxies. The Astrophysical journal, 878(2), https://doi.org/10.3847/1538-4357/ab203f

We use deep, μ r lesssim 28 mag arcsec−2, r-band imaging from the Dark Energy Camera Legacy Survey to search for past, or ongoing, merger activity in a sample of 282 low-excitation radio galaxies (LERGs) at z < 0.07. Our principal aim is to assess t... Read More about The effect of minor and major mergers on the evolution of low excitation radio galaxies.

© Astronomical Society of Australia 2017; published by Cambridge University Press. The Taipan galaxy survey (hereafter simply 'Taipan') is a multi-object spectroscopic survey starting in 2017 that will cover 2π steradians over the southern sky (δ ≲ 1...
