Detecting AGN in Dwarf Galaxies
Identifying the source of the nuclear flare in SDSS J154843.06+220812.6
How common are growing black holes in small galaxies? Today’s paper presents a model to predict the fraction of dwarf galaxies with an active black hole at its center.
The authors of today’s paper dig deep into the debate of whether galaxy mergers are major players in triggering AGN at intermediate redshifts.
Exploring the Dynamics of AGN Outflows
Supermassive black holes have a really nasty reputation for rendering galaxies uninhabitable, but this perception may be misguided. It’s possible that the radiation these vast beasts release while feasting could bring forth a bounty for life as we know it. Could organisms subsist on the light of an AGN sun?
