Ever since the co-existence of an active galactic nucleus (AGN) and a starburst was observationally discovered, there has been a significant controversy over whether there is a physical connection between starbursts and AGNs. If yes, it is a subject of interest to reveal which one triggers another. Here we bring a unique insight onto the subject by identifying 840 galaxies with both a post-starburst signature (strong Balmer absorption lines) and an AGN (based on the emission line ratio). These… 
Radio emission and active galactic nucleus feedback in post-starburst galaxies
We investigate radio-mode AGN activity among post-starburst galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) to determine whether AGN feedback may be responsible for the cessation of star formation.
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
Understanding the AGN-Host Connection in Partially Obscured Active Galactic Nuclei. I. The Nature of AGN+H II Composites
The goal of our serial papers is to examine the evolutionary connection between an active galactic nucleus (AGN) and star formation in the AGN's host galaxy for partially obscured AGNs (i.e., Seyfert
Timing the starburst–AGN connection
The mass of supermassive black holes at the centre of galaxies is tightly correlated with the mass of the galaxy bulges which host them. This observed correlation implies a mechanism of joint growth,
X-ray selected starbursts in the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey-North
We investigate claims that recent ultra-deep X-ray surveys are detecting starbursts at cosmologically interesting redshifts (z = 0‐1). We combine X-ray data from the 2 Ms Chandra Deep Field-North and
Bursty stellar populations and obscured active galactic nuclei in galaxy bulges
We investigate trends between the recent star formation history and black hole growth in galaxy bulges in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The galaxies lie at 0.01 60%) is contributed by bulges
We have employed emission-line diagnostics derived from DEIMOS and NIRSPEC spectroscopy to determine the origin of the [O II] emission line observed in six active galactic nucleus (AGN) hosts at z ~
The UV properties of E+A galaxies: Constraints on feedback-driven quenching of star formation
We present the first large-scale study of E+A galaxies that incorporates photometry in the ultraviolet (UV ) wavelengths. E+A galaxies are ‘post-starburst’ systems, with strong Balmer absorption
A QSO host galaxy and its Lyα emission at z= 6.43
Host galaxies of highest redshift quasi-stellar objects (QSOs) are of interest; they provide us with a valuable opportunity to investigate physics relevant to the starburst-active galactic nuclei
The role of AGN in the colour transformation of galaxies at redshifts z≈ 1
We explore the role of active galactic nuclei (AGN) in establishing and/or maintaining the bimodal colour distribution of galaxies by quenching their star formation and hence, causing their
