Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 121)


This is a progress report on the project on faint radio galaxy populations that is being carried out at Leiden Observatory. The aim of the project is to chart the active (radio) galaxy population in space and radio luminosity. The final goal is to use these data in a study of the evolutionary behaviour of individual active galaxies, population characteristics like birth rate functions etc. The status of the project was most recently reviewed by Van der Laan and Windhorst (1981), Van der Laan et al. (1983) and Windhorst (1984).
