Apart from viewing-dependent obscuration, intrinsic broad-line emission from active galactic nuclei (AGN) follows an evolutionary sequence: type 1 → 1.2/1.5 → 1.8/1.9 → 2a s the accretion rate on to the central black hole is decreasing. This spectral evolution is controlled, at least in part, by the parameter Lbol/M 2/3 , where Lbol is the AGN bolometric luminosity and M is the black hole mass. Both this dependence and the double-peaked profiles that emerge along the sequence arise naturally in… Expand
