Suppression of Star Formation in the Hosts of Low-Excitation Radio GalaxiesNov 25 2015The feedback from radio-loud active galactic nuclei (R-AGN) may help maintain low star formation (SF) rates in their early-type hosts, but the observational evidence for this mechanism has been inconclusive. We study systematic differences of aggregate ... More
