Abstract [en]

This thesis investigates the X-ray properties of the entire Stanghellini et al. (1998) complete sample of GHz Peaked Spectrum galaxies with redshift lower than 1. In total 19 sources are included mainly from observations made by the European space telescope, XMM-Newton. Out of these the analysis of seven "new" observations made between 2006 and 2008 are throughout described. Data from the new observations shows consistency with already analysed data. As a new result a tentative discovery of a bi-modal structure in the X-ray to radio luminosity ratio within the sample is presented.
