Studying the relationship between X-ray emission and accretion in AGN using the XMM–Newton Bright Serendipitous Survey

Abstract

We study the link between the X-ray emission in radio-quiet active galactic nuclei (AGN) and the accretion rate on the central supermassive black hole using a statistically well-defined and representative sample of 71 type 1 AGN extracted from the XMM–Newton Bright Serendipitous Survey. We search and quantify the statistical correlations between some… (More)
