Radio Continuum Science with the SKA and Its Precursors

Radio Continuum Science with the SKA and Its Precursors


I will discuss the key scientific aims of the deep continuum surveys that will be possible with the SKA and its precursors. I will focus on two main aspects, the evolution of activity in the Universe and how we can use this information to obtain unique constraints on the cosmological model and modified gravity theories, emphasising the role that a large scale optical survey conducted with the LSST could play in this area.
