Abstract Using three-dimensional hydrodynamic modeling, we simulate the development and evolution of Active Galactic Nuclei in galaxy groups in order to better understand the relationship between jet curvature and various properties of the Intergalactic Medium and of the AGN itself, with an emphasis on the use of radius of curvature as a density probe of the IGM.
