Context. The COSMOS survey is a multiwavelength survey aimed to study the evolution of galaxies, AGN and large scale structures. Within this survey XMM-COSMOS a powerful tool to detect AGN and galaxy clusters. The XMM-COSMOS is a deep X-ray survey over the full 2 deg^2 of the COSMOS area. It consists of 55 XMM-Newton pointings for a total exposure of ~1.5 Ms with an average vignetting-corrected depth of 40 ks across the field of view and a sky coverage of 2.13 deg^2. Aims. We present the… 
The XMM-Newton survey of the Small Magellanic Cloud: The X-ray point-source catalogue
Context. Local-Group galaxies provide access to samples of X-ray source populations of whole galaxies. The XMM-Newton survey of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) completely covers the bar and
The XMM-Newton Wide-Field Survey in the COSMOS field (XMM-COSMOS): demography and multiwavelength properties of obscured and unobscured luminous AGN
We report the final optical identifications of the medium-depth (~60 ksec), contiguous (2 deg^2) XMM-Newton survey of the COSMOS field. XMM-Newton has detected ~800 X-ray sources down to limiting
The XMM-SERVS survey: new XMM-Newton point-source catalogue for the XMM-LSS field
We present an X-ray point-source catalogue from the XMM-Large Scale Structure (XMMLSS) survey region, one of the XMM-Spitzer Extragalactic Representative Volume Survey (XMM-SERVS) fields. We target
The XMM deep survey in the CDF-S - III. Point source catalogue and number counts in the hard X-rays
Nuclear obscuration plays a key role in the initial phases of AGN growth, yet not many highly obscured active galactic nuclei (AGN) are currently known beyond the local Universe, and their search is
We present a study of the redshift evolution of the projected correlation function of 593 X-ray selected active galactic nuclei (AGNs) with I_(AB) < 23 and spectroscopic redshifts z < 4, extracted
The XMM-Newton wide field survey in the COSMOS field: Clustering dependence of X-ray selected AGN on host galaxy properties
Aims. We study the spatial clustering of 632 (1130) XMM-COSMOS active galactic nuclei (AGNs) with known spectroscopic or photometric redshifts in the range z = [0.1–2.5] in order to measure the AGN
The 2-10 keV unabsorbed luminosity function of AGN from the LSS, CDFS, and COSMOS surveys
The XMM-Large scale structure (XMM-LSS), XMM-Cosmological evolution survey (XMM-COSMOS), and XMM-Chandra deep field south (XMM-CDFS) surveys are complementary in terms of sky coverage and depth.
The XMM-Newton survey in the H-ATLAS field
Wide area X-ray and far infrared surveys are a fundamental tool to investigate the link between AGN growth and star formation, especially in the low-redshift universe (z<1). The Herschel Terahertz
Cross-correlation of the 2XMMi catalogue with Data Release 7 of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
A cross-matching algorithm based on the classical likelihood ratio estimator is presented that represents an excellent starting point to select well defined samples of X-ray-emitting objects and is illustrated by investigating two scientific use cases.
A wide search for obscured active galactic nuclei using XMM–Newton and WISE
Heavily obscured and Compton-thick active galactic nuclei (AGNs) are missing even in the deepest X-ray surveys, and indirect methods are required to detect them. Here we use a combination of the


The XMM-Newton Wide-Field Survey in the COSMOS Field. I. Survey Description
We present the first set of XMM-Newton EPIC observations in the 2 deg^2 COSMOS field. The strength of the COSMOS project is the unprecedented combination of a large solid angle and sensitivity over

We present the results of a search for galaxy clusters in the first 36 XMM-Newton pointings on the Cosmic Evolution Survey (COSMOS) field. We reach a depth for a total cluster flux in the 0.5-2 keV
XMM-Newton observations of the Lockman hole: X-ray source catalogue and number counts

The soft X-ray cluster-AGN spatial cross-correlation function in the ROSAT-NEP survey
Context. X-ray surveys facilitate investigations of the environment of AGNs. Deep Chandra observations have revealed that the AGN source surface density rises near clusters of galaxies. The natural
The XMM-Newton serendipitous survey - IV. Optical identification of the XMM-Newton medium sensitivity survey (XMS)
At the flux levels sampled by the XMM-Newton Medium sensitivity Survey, it is found that the X-ray sky is largely dominated by Active Galactic Nuclei, but with a significant contribution from unobscured AGN.
