We examine the properties of the host galaxies of 22,623 narrow-line AGN with 0.02<z<0.3 selected from a complete sample of 122,808 galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. We focus on the luminosity of the [OIII]$\lambda$5007 emission line as a tracer of the strength of activity in the nucleus. We study how AGN host properties compare to those of normal galaxies and how they depend on L[OIII]. We find that AGN of all luminosities reside almost exclusively in massive galaxies and have…

The evolution of the AGN luminosity function documented in recent optical and X–ray surveys is driven by a decrease in the characteristic mass scale of actively accreting black holes.

Using a large sample of local galaxies (144,940) with -17.5 6. We find that the fraction of galaxies hosting an AGN (f {sub AGN}) depends strongly on morphology together with color, and very weakly
THE ENVIRONMENTS OF ACTIVE GALACTIC NUCLEI WITHIN THE zCOSMOS DENSITY FIELD
The impact of environment on AGN activity up to z~1 is assessed by utilizing a mass-selected sample of galaxies from the 10k catalog of the zCOSMOS spectroscopic redshift survey. We identify 147 AGN
