By Vincenzo Antonuccio-Delogu (editor), Joseph Silk (editor)

In the past decade, convincing proof has been accrued about the impression of energetic galactic nuclei (AGN) job at the inner and exterior atmosphere in their host galaxies. that includes contributions from well-respected researchers within the box, and bringing jointly paintings by way of experts in either galaxy formation and AGN, this quantity addresses a couple of key questions about AGN suggestions within the context of galaxy formation. the themes lined contain downsizing and star-formation time scales in giant elliptical galaxies, the relationship among the epochs of supermassive black gap progress and galaxy formation and the query of no matter if AGN and superstar formation coexist. Authors additionally talk about key difficult computational difficulties, together with jet-interstellar/intergalactic medium interactions, and either jet- and merging-induced megastar formation. compatible for researchers and graduate scholars in astrophysics, this quantity displays the attractive and full of life discussions occurring during this rising box of analysis.

2 mm signal-to-noise, or with different classification, indicates that the estimated stellar masses are not related to the mm brightness or to the source classification. The 6 μm luminosity is a good proxy of AGN power in AGNs and composite systems because it is dominated by AGN-heated hot dust emission. In the starbursts, the AGN contribution at 6 μm is absent or significantly lower than the emission (continuum and PAHs) associated with star-forming regions. 4 clearly 26 M.

X-ray, IR) to optical emission-line diagnostics. g. Nandra et al. 2007; Gabor et al. 2009). In this review, we highlight our work using the COSMOS survey with specific attention 32 J. D. Silverman et al. to the zCOSMOS spectroscopic redshift survey and cospatial X-ray observations using XMM-Newton to identify the galaxies, based on their stellar mass and star formation rates, most likely to harbor an actively accreting SMBH. We refer the reader to the full publication (Silverman et al. 2009) that provides details on the methods and analysis techniques.

Here, we investigate this evolutionary scenario by comparing star formation rates (SFRs), AGN activity and stellar masses in high-z (z ∼ 2) active systems. 2 Spitzer selection of high-z luminous infrared galaxies For this work, we selected a sample of IR luminous source candidates in a ∼20 deg2 area obtained by combining the Lockman Hole field (LH, ∼11 deg2 , α = 10h 45m , δ = +58◦ ), and the XMM-LSS field (XMM, ∼9 deg2 , α = 02h 21m , δ = −04◦ 30 ) of the Spitzer Wide Area Infrared Extragalactic Survey (SWIRE1 ; Lonsdale et al.
