We present a Suzaku observation of the dwarf Seyfert galaxy NGC 4395 with an estimated black hole mass of ~10 5 M ⊙ . Rapid and strong X-ray variability with an rms amplitude of ~60 per cent is observed in the 0.4-10 keV band with the XIS cameras. The shape of the light curve appears to depend on energies. The hard X-ray emission is detected up to 35 keV with the HXD-PIN detector at a similar flux level as observed with the INTEGRAL IBIS. The X-ray spectrum below 10 keV is strongly absorbed by… Expand
The effects of X-ray absorption variability in NGC 4395
We present a new X-ray analysis of the dwarf Seyfert galaxy NGC 4395, based on two archival XMM–Newton and Suzaku observations. This source is well known for a series of remarkable properties: one ofExpand
The X-ray to [Ne V]3426 flux ratio: discovering heavily obscured AGN in the distant Universe
We investigate the possibility of using the ratio between the 2−10 keV flux and the [Ne V]3426 emission line flux (X/NeV) as a diagnostic diagram to discover heavily obscured, possibly Compton-thickExpand
EUCLIA. II. On the Puzzling Large UV to X-Ray Lags in Seyfert Galaxies
Recent intense X-ray and UV monitoring campaigns with Swift have detected clear UV lags behind X-ray in several local active galactic nuclei (AGNs). The UV to X-ray lags are often larger (by a factorExpand
The Nature of the Broadband X-Ray Variability in the Dwarf Seyfert Galaxy NGC 4395
We present a flux-resolved X-ray analysis of the dwarf Seyfert 1.8 galaxy NGC 4395, based on three archival $XMM-Newton$ and one archival $NuSTAR$ observations. The source is known to harbor a lowExpand
Variability-selected Low-luminosity Active Galactic Nuclei in the 4 Ms Chandra Deep Field-South
The 4 Ms Chandra Deep Field-South (CDF-S) and other deep X-ray surveys have been highly effective at selecting active galactic nuclei (AGNs). However, cosmologically distant low-luminosity AGNsExpand
A distinctive disk-jet coupling in the lowest-mass seyfert, NGC 4395
Simultaneous observations of X-rays and radio luminosities have been well studied in accreting stellar-mass black holes. These observations are performed in order to understand how mass accretionExpand
Multi-epoch X-ray observations of the Seyfert 1.2 galaxy Mrk 79: bulk motion of the illuminating X-ray source
