Spectral analysis of the large-scale radio emission of M 87
We present first results from a spectral analysis of the outer radio halo of M 87. Radio observations at 4 frequencies (333 MHz, 1.6 GHz, 4.8 GHz and 10.55 GHz) have been used to construct spectral index and break frequency distributions. Implications on the possible mechanisms for the formation of the halo are discussed.
