Narrow Line Seyfert 1 galaxies (NLS1s) are intriguing owing to their continuum as well as emission-line properties. The observed peculiar properties of the NLS1s are believed to be as a result of an accretion rate close to the Eddington limit. As a consequence of this, for a given luminosity, NLS1s have smaller black hole (BH) masses compared with normal Seyfert galaxies. Here we argue that NLS1s might be Seyfert galaxies in their early stage of evolution and as such may be low-redshift, low… 

The Host Galaxies of Narrow-Line Seyfert 1 Galaxies: Evidence for Bar-Driven Fueling

We present a study of the host galaxy morphologies of narrow- and broad-line Seyfert 1 galaxies (NLS1's and BLS1's) based on broadband optical images from the Hubble Space Telescope archives. We find

We present a new accurate sample of narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies (NLS1s) in the southern hemisphere from the Six-degree Field Galaxy Survey (6dFGS). Based on the optical spectral features, 167

Research Note Supersolar metal abundances and the Broad Line Region of Narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies

Narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies (NLSy1) are intriguing due to their extreme continuum and emission line properties which are not yet well understood. This paper is motivated by the recent suggestion

The Central Engines of Narrow-Line Seyfert 1 Galaxies

It has been suggested that narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies (NLS1s) are evolutionarily young objects, powered by accretion onto central black holes that are significantly lower in mass than those found

Jetted Narrow-Line Seyfert 1 Galaxies & Co.: Where Do We Stand?

The discovery in 2008 of high-energy gamma-rays from Narrow-Line Seyfert 1 Galaxies (NLS1s) made it clear that there were active galactic nuclei (AGN) other than blazars and radio galaxies that can

Narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies with absorbed jets -- insights from radio spectral index maps

Narrow-line Seyfert 1 (NLS1) galaxies are active galactic nuclei (AGN) believed to be in the early stages of their evolution. A fraction of them have been found to host relativistic jets. Due to the

Narrow-Line Seyfert 1 Galaxies With Absorbed Jets–Insights From Radio Spectral Index Maps

Narrow-line Seyfert 1 (NLS1) galaxies are active galactic nuclei (AGN) believed to be in the early stages of their evolution. A fraction of them have been found to host relativistic jets. Due to the

Exploring Narrow-Line Seyfert 1 Galaxies through the Physical Properties of Their Hosts

In this work we address the still open question of the nature of narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies (NLS1s): are they really active nuclei with lower mass black holes (BHs) than Seyfert 1 galaxies (S1s)

Morphology and Evolutionary Status of Narrow Line Seyfert (NLS) Active Galaxies

This is a review of the literature on narrow line Seyfert 1 (NLS) active galaxies. They are treated as a complex of structures, processes, and factors including: a place in a large-scale structure,

The role of secular evolution in the black hole growth of narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies

Narrow-line Seyfert 1 (NLS1) galaxies show extreme properties with respect to the other Seyfert galaxies. Indeed, they are thought to be accreting at Eddington rates and to possess low-mass black

Evidence for Relativistic Outflows in Narrow-Line Seyfert 1 Galaxies

We report the observation of features near 1 keV in the ASCA spectra from three narrow-line Seyfert 1 (NLS1) galaxies. We interpret these as oxygen absorption in a highly relativistic outflow. If

The spectra of narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies

Measurements are presented of a group of active galactic nuclei with all the properties of Seyfert 1 or 1.5 galaxies, but with unusually narrow H I lines. They include Mrk 42, 359, and 1239

The Chemical Evolution of QSOs and the Implications for Cosmology and Galaxy Formation

We examine the chemical evolution of QSO broad-line gas by applying spectral synthesis and chemical enrichment models to the N V/C IV and N V/He II emission-line ratios. The models indicate that BLR

The Black Hole-to-Bulge Mass Relation in Active Galactic Nuclei

The masses of the central black holes in active galactic nuclei (AGNs) can be estimated using the broad emission lines as a probe of the virial mass inside the broad-line region (BLR). Using

Detection of strong iron emission from quasars at redshift z > 3

QUASARS are distant, luminous objects generally thought to be powered by the accretion of gas onto a supermassive black hole1; their spectra are characterized by broad emission lines originating from

Lyman Limit Imaging of High Redshift Galaxies. III. New Observations of 4 QSO Fields

We present the results of deep Lyman limit imaging in four new fields as part of a continuing search for galaxies at $3.0 \le z \le 3.5$. The technique uses a custom broad--band filter set ($U_n G

The mass of massive black holes in quasar cores can be deduced by using the typical velocities of Hβ-emitting clouds in the broad-line region and by the size of this region. However, this estimate
