2014ApJ...784..159G The Importance of Jet Bending in Gamma-Ray AGNs---Revisited Graham, P. J.; Tingay, S. J. Abstract. We investigate the hypothesis that gamma-ray-quiet active galactic nuclei (AGNs) have a greater tendency for jet bending than gamma-ray-loud AGNs, revisiting the analysis of Tingay et al. We perform a statistical analysis using a large sample of 351 radio-loud AGNs along with gamma-ray identifications from the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT). Our results show no statistically significant differences in jet-bending properties between gamma-ray-loud and gamma-ray-quiet populations, indicating that jet bending is not a significant factor for gamma-ray detection in AGNs. Key words: galaxies: active, galaxies: jets, gamma rays: general, quasars: general
