Distant Radio Galaxies: The Strong Link between the Radio and Optical Emission
Recent observations of distant radio galaxies show that there is a strong link between the radio source and the optical continuum and Lyα line emission from the galaxy. This link is discussed in terms of differences in age, orientation and environment between the radio sources.
