All-wavelength Extended Groth Strip International Survey: the Environment of X-ray Sources at Z ≈ 1

We explore the environment of z ≈ 1 AGN using a sample of 53 spectroscopically identified X-ray sources in the All-wavelength Extended Groth strip International Survey. We quantify the local density in the vicinity of an X-ray source by measuring the projected surface density of spectroscopically identified optical galaxies within a radius defined by the… CONTINUE READING
