" A new method to identify AGNs and the nature of low-luminosity AGNs "
(IPMU, University of Tokyo)
We characterize the nature of low-luminosity AGNs with star formation rates
of the host galaxies, black hole masses, and accretion rates. We develop a new
method to identify AGNs using a single (or perhaps two) emission line.
With this method, we can cleanly subtract emission line fluxes from star forming
regions to extract pure AGN emission, which is crucial to characterize AGN
activities. Our tentative results show that accretion rates increase with increasing
star formation rates. This suggests that the amount of gas in galaxies may
be an important parameter to characterize AGN activities, and it might provide
a link between the down-sizing in galaxy star formation and the down-sizing in
Seminars are also held at JAC,
