1999AJ....118.1169X RADIO-LOUD AND RADIO-QUIET ACTIVE GALACTIC NUCLEI CHUN XU, MARIO LIVIO, AND STEFI BAUM Space Telescope Science Institute, 3700 San Martin Drive, Baltimore, MD 21218; chunxu@stsci.edu, mlivio@stsci.edu, sbaum@stsci.edu Received 1999 March 16; accepted 1999 May 17 ABSTRACT We have generated a sample of 409 active galactic nuclei (AGNs) for which both the radio luminosity at 5 GHz and the line luminosity in [O III] {lambda}5007 have been measured. The radio luminosity spans a range of 10 orders of magnitude, and the [O III] line luminosity spans a range of 8 orders of magnitude-both considerably larger than the ranges in previous studies. We show that these two quantities are correlated in a similar way for both radio-loud and radio-quiet AGNs. We demonstrate that the observed correlation can be explained in terms of a model in which jets are accelerated and collimated by a vertical magnetic field. Key words: galaxies: active-galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD - galaxies: nuclei-galaxies: spiral-quasars: general -radio continuum
