This article presents a study of the morphology and intensity of star formation in the host galaxies of eight Palomar-Green quasars using observations with the Hubble Space Telescope. 

ALMA Resolves the Stellar Birth Explosion in Distant Quasar 3C298

Galaxies are believed to experience star formation and black-hole-driven nuclear activity symbiotically. The symbiosis may be more extreme in the distant universe, as far-infrared photometry with the

A Catalog of 406 AGNs in MaNGA: A Connection between Radio-mode AGNs and Star Formation Quenching

Accurate active galactic nucleus (AGN) identifications and spatially resolved host galaxy properties are a powerful combination for studies of the role of AGNs and AGN feedback in the coevolution of

A GLIMPSE AT QUASAR HOST GALAXY FAR-UV EMISSION USING DAMPED Lyα's AS NATURAL CORONAGRAPHS

In merger-driven models of massive galaxy evolution, the luminous quasar phase is expected to be accompanied by vigorous star formation in quasar host galaxies. In this paper, we use high column

Spatially Resolved Patchy Lyα Emission within the Central Kiloparsec of a Strongly Lensed Quasar Host Galaxy at z = 2.8

We report the detection of extended Lyα emission from the host galaxy of SDSS J2222+2745, a strongly lensed quasar at z = 2.8. Spectroscopic follow-up clearly reveals extended Lyα in emission between

Fast outflows and star formation quenching in quasar host galaxies

Negative feedback from active galactic nuclei (AGN) is considered a key mechanism in shaping galaxy evolution. Fast, extended outflows are frequently detected in the AGN host galaxies at all

Star formation rates in luminous quasars at 2 < z < 3

We investigate the relation between star formation rates (M_s) and AGN properties in optically selected type 1 quasars at 2 < z < 3 using data from Herschel and the SDSS. We find that M_s remains

Extreme star formation events in quasar hosts over 0.5 < z < 4

We explore the relationship between active galactic nuclei and star formation in a sample of 513 optically luminous type 1 quasars up to redshifts of $\sim$4 hosting extremely high star formation

COMPARING NARROW- AND BROAD-LINE AGNs IN A NEW DIAGNOSTIC DIAGRAM FOR EMISSION-LINE GALAXIES BASED ON WISE DATA

Using a new color–color diagnostic diagram in the mid-infrared (MIR) built from WISE data, the MIRDD, we compare narrow-emission-line galaxies (NELGs) that exhibit different activity types

A LARGE SYSTEMATIC SEARCH FOR CLOSE SUPERMASSIVE BINARY AND RAPIDLY RECOILING BLACK HOLES

We have carried out a systematic search for subparsec supermassive black hole (BH) binaries among z ≲ 0.7 Sloan Digital Sky Survey quasars. These are predicted by models of supermassive BH and host

GEMINI LONG-SLIT OBSERVATIONS OF LUMINOUS OBSCURED QUASARS: FURTHER EVIDENCE FOR AN UPPER LIMIT ON THE SIZE OF THE NARROW-LINE REGION

We examine the spatial extent of the narrow-line regions (NLRs) of a sample of 30 luminous obscured quasars at 0.4 < z < 0.7 observed with spatially resolved Gemini-N GMOS long-slit spectroscopy.

Elemental Abundances in Quasistellar Objects: Star Formation and Galactic Nuclear Evolution at High Redshifts

▪ Abstract Quasar (QSO) elemental abundances provide unique probes of high-redshift star formation and galaxy evolution. There is growing evidence from both the emission and intrinsic absorption li...

[O II] Emission in Quasar Host Galaxies: Evidence for a Suppressed Star Formation Efficiency

The [O II] λ3727 line, a commonly used estimator of star formation rate in extragalactic surveys, should be an equally effective tracer of star formation in the host galaxies of quasars, whose

The Environment of the Quasar PG 1613 + 65 (MKN 876): A Close Interacting Pair

Spectroscopic and two-color imaging of the environment of the bright, low-redshift quasar PG 1613 + 65 = Mkn 876 is presented. The quasar is situated in a poor cluster of galaxies of Abell richness

The Host Galaxies of IRAS-Selected Quasi-Stellar Objects

We present Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images of three QSOs selected on the basis of their IRAS properties. The data were taken with the Planetary Camera primarily in order to examine the host

Enhanced star formation rates in AGN hosts with respect to inactive galaxies from PEP-Herschel observations

We compare the average star formation (SF) activity in X-ray selected AGN hosts with a mass-matched control sample of inactive galaxies, including both star forming and quiescent sources, in the 0.5

THE PROPERTIES OF POST-STARBURST QUASARS BASED ON OPTICAL SPECTROSCOPY

We present optical spectroscopy of a sample of 38 post-starburst quasars (PSQs) at z ∼ 0.3, 29 of which have morphological classifications based on Hubble Space Telescope imaging. These broad-lined

Energy input from quasars regulates the growth and activity of black holes and their host galaxies

Simulations that simultaneously follow star formation and the growth of black holes during galaxy–galaxy collisions find that, in addition to generating a burst of star formation, a merger leads to strong inflows that feed gas to the supermassive black hole and thereby power the quasar.

The growth of supermassive black holes and their host galaxies are thought to be linked, but the precise nature of this symbiotic relationship is still poorly understood. Both observations and
