Using a Monte Carlo Simulation to Resolve Through Confusion the Radio Source Background of Weak Radio Sources Out to Z = 2.9

Melanie Grierson
This thesis details how to create a simulated universe on a 1000'' x 1000'' sky with 1'' x 1'' pixels. The simulated sky was created to provide a realistic distribution of radio sources given a specific source count and includes instrumental observing effects associated with the Karl G. Janksy Very Large Array (VLA). 1.4 GHz counts from Condon et al. (2012), which underwent a spline interpolation, were used to create ≈ 37k radio sources ranging...
