The Fall of the Quasar Population

Abstract

We derive quantitative predictions of the optical and X-ray luminosity functions for quasars in the redshift range z ∼< 3. Based on accreting black holes as primary sources for the quasar outputs, we investigate how the accretion is controlled by the surrounding structures, as these grow hierarchically from the formation of the host galaxies to their… (More)
