We examine the properties of the host galaxies of 22 623 narrow-line active galactic nuclei (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 [O III] λ5007 emission line as a tracer of the strength of activity in the nucleus. We study how AGN host properties compare with those of normal galaxies and how they depend on L[O III]. We find that AGN of all luminosities reside almost exclusively in…

TLDR
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.
STAR FORMATION IN THE CENTRAL REGIONS OF ACTIVE AND NORMAL GALAXIES
We investigated the properties of the host galaxies of active galactic nuclei (AGNs). We used radio emission around the nuclei of the host galaxies to represent AGN activity and used infrared (IR)
The Diverse Morphologies and Structures of Dwarf Galaxies Hosting Optically Selected Active Massive Black Holes
We present a study of 41 dwarf galaxies hosting active massive black holes (BHs) using Hubble Space Telescope observations. The host galaxies have stellar masses in the range of M ⋆ ∼ 108.5–109.5 M ⊙
ACTIVE GALACTIC NUCLEUS HOST GALAXY MORPHOLOGIES IN COSMOS
We use Hubble Space Telescope/Advanced Camera for Surveys images and a photometric catalog of the Cosmic Evolution Survey (COSMOS) field to analyze morphologies of the host galaxies of ~400 active
ENVIRONMENTAL DEPENDENCE OF ACTIVE GALACTIC NUCLEUS ACTIVITY. I. THE EFFECTS OF HOST GALAXY
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
Are galaxies with active galactic nuclei a transition population
We present the results of an analysis of a well-selected sample of galaxies with active and inactive galactic nuclei from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, in the range 0.01 < z < 0.16. The SDSS galaxy

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
The Different Physical Mechanisms that Drive the Star-Formation Histories of Giant and Dwarf Galaxies
We present an analysis of star formation and nuclear activity in galaxies as a function of both luminosity and environment in the fourth data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Using a sample
The Coincidence of Nuclear Star Clusters and Active Galactic Nuclei
We study galaxies that host both nuclear star clusters and AGNs, implying the presence of a massive black hole. We select a sample of 176 galaxies with previously detected nuclear star clusters that
