Current X-ray surveys have proved to be essential tools in order to identify and study AGNs across cosmic time. However, there is evidence that the most heavily obscured AGNs are largely missing even in the deepest surveys. The search for these obscured AGNs is one of the most outstanding issues of extragalactic astronomy, since they are expected to make a major contribution to the high energy peak of the X-ray background (XRB) and might constitute a particularly active and dusty phase of black…

The (black hole)-bulge mass scaling relation at low masses
Several recent papers have reported on the occurrence of active galactic nuclei (AGNs) containing undermassive black holes relative to a linear scaling relation between black hole mass (M {sub bh})
