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 bias and estimate the typical mass of the hosting dark matter (DM) halo as a function of AGN host galaxy properties. Methods. We created AGN subsamples in terms of stellar mass, M*, and specific black hole accretion rate, LX/M*, to study how AGN environment depends on these quantities. Further, we…

It is widely reported, based on clustering measurements of observed active galactic nucleus (AGN) samples, that AGNs reside in similar mass host dark matter haloes across the bulk of cosmic time,
The role of scatter and satellites in shaping the large-scale clustering of X-ray AGN as a function of host galaxy stellar mass
The co-evolution between central supermassive black holes (BHs), their host galaxies, and dark matter haloes is still a matter of intense debate. Present theoretical models suffer from large
Semi-analytic modelling of AGNs: autocorrelation function and halo occupation
The spatial clustering of active galactic nuclei (AGNs) is considered to be one of the important diagnostics for the understanding of the underlying processes behind their activities complementary to

Large-scale clustering measurements with photometric redshifts: comparing the dark matter haloes of X-ray AGN, star-forming and passive galaxies at z ≈ 1
We combine multi-wavelength data in the AEGIS-XD and C-COSMOS surveys to measure the typical dark matter halo mass of X-ray selected active galactic nuclei (AGN) [LX(2-10 keV) > 1042 erg s-1] in
The Swift/BAT AGN Spectroscopic Survey. IX: The Clustering Environments of an Unbiased Sample of Local AGNs
We characterize the environments of local accreting supermassive black holes by measuring the clustering of AGN in the Swift/BAT Spectroscopic Survey (BASS). With 548 AGN in the redshift range
Dissecting photometric redshift for active galactic nucleus using XMM- and Chandra-COSMOS samples

Dependence of clustering of X-ray AGN on obscuration
Recent studies which select active galactic nucleus (AGN) in the mid-infrared (IR) part of the spectrum find that obscured AGNs reside in more massive dark matter haloes compared to unobscured ones.
