With these data I will construct the largest, homogeneous and complete sample of AGN to date, needed to address the main objectives of this proposal: 1) determine the AGN bolometric luminosity function, and study its evolution with the cosmic time; 2) measure the incidence of mergers and smooth processes for the triggering AGNs; 3) study the effect of AGN feedback on galaxy growth; 4) provide the first significant samples of high-z AGN to be used as constraints on BH formation models; 5) define optimal strategies to exploit synergies between two upcoming all-sky surveys, eROSITA and Euclid.
At all the wavelengths considered we find that the luminosity functions predicted by the ANN are in excellent agreement," ABC Online quoted the researchers as saying.
