The Impact of Energy Feedback on Quasar Evolution and Black Hole Demographics

Abstract

We investigate how accretion episodes onto massive black holes power quasars and active galactic nuclei while they accumulate mass into the holes. We implement an analytic approach to compute both the trend and the stochastic component to the trigger of the accretion events, as provided by structure buildup after the hierarchical paradigm. We base on host… (More)
