We describe the Sloan Digital Sky Survey IV (SDSS-IV), a project encompassing three major spectroscopic programs. The Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment 2 (APOGEE-2) is observing hundreds of thousands of Milky Way stars at high resolution and high signal-to-noise ratio in the near-infrared. The Mapping Nearby Galaxies at Apache Point Observatory (MaNGA) survey is obtaining spatially-resolved spectroscopy for thousands of nearby galaxies (median redshift of z = 0. Read More

This is the fourth paper in a series that reports on our investigation of the clustering properties of active galactic nuclei (AGN) identified in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey (RASS) and Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). In this paper we investigate the cause of the X-ray luminosity dependence of the clustering of broad-line, luminous AGN at 0.16Read More

We utilize $\Lambda$CDM halo occupation models of galaxy clustering to investigate the evolving stellar mass dependent clustering of galaxies in the PRIsm MUlti-object Survey (PRIMUS) and DEEP2 Redshift Survey over the past eight billion years of cosmic time, between $0.2Read More

We present the most up-to-date X-ray luminosity function (XLF) and absorption function of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) over the redshift range from 0 to 5, utilizing the largest, highly complete sample ever available obtained from surveys performed with Swift/BAT, MAXI, ASCA, XMM-Newton, Chandra, and ROSAT. The combined sample, including that of the Subaru/XMM-Newton Deep Survey, consists of 4039 detections in the soft (0.5--2 keV) and/or hard ($>2$ keV) band. Read More

Despite substantial effort, the precise physical processes that lead to the growth of super-massive black holes in the centers of galaxies are still not well understood. These phases of black hole growth are thought to be of key importance in understanding galaxy evolution. Forthcoming missions such as eROSITA, HETDEX, eBOSS, BigBOSS, LSST, and Pan-STARRS will compile by far the largest ever Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) catalogs which will allow us to measure the spatial distribution of AGNs in the universe with unprecedented accuracy.

We conducted a multi-wavelength study to unveil the properties of the extremely long-period cataclysmic variable V479 And. We performed series of observations, including moderate to high spectral resolution optical spectrophotometry, X-ray observations with Swift, linear polarimetry and near-IR photometry. This binary system is a low-inclination ~ 17^o system with a 0. Read More

We have studied the star-formation and AGN activity of massive galaxies in the redshift range $z=0.4-2$, which are detected in a deep survey field using the AKARI InfraRed (IR) astronomical satellite and {\em Subaru} telescope toward the North Ecliptic Pole (NEP). The AKARI/IRC Mid-InfraRed (MIR) multiband photometry is used to trace their star-forming activities with the Polycyclic-Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH) emissions, which is also used to distinguish star-forming populations from AGN dominated ones and to estimate the Star Formation Rate (SFR) derived from their total emitting IR (TIR) luminosities.

This is the third paper in a series that reports on our investigation of the clustering properties of AGNs identified in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey (RASS) and Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). In this paper, we extend the redshift range to 0.07Read More

This is the second paper of a series that reports on our investigation of the clustering properties of AGNs in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey (RASS) through cross-correlation functions (CCFs) with Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) galaxies. In this paper, we apply the Halo Occupation Distribution (HOD) model to the CCFs between the RASS Broad-line AGNs with SDSS Luminous Red Galaxies (LRGs) in the redshift range 0.16Read More

What is the relevance of major mergers and interactions as triggering mechanisms for active galactic nuclei (AGN) activity? To answer this longstanding question, we analyze 140 XMM-selected AGN host galaxies and a matched control sample of 1264 inactive galaxies over z~0.3-1.0 and log(M_*/M_sun)<11. Read More

We investigate the clustering properties of ~1550 broad-line active galactic nuclei (AGNs) at =0.25 detected in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey (RASS) through their measured cross-correlation function with ~46,000 Luminous Red Galaxies (LRGs) in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. By measuring the cross-correlation of our AGN sample with a larger tracer set of LRGs, we both minimize shot noise errors due to the relatively small AGN sample size and avoid systematic errors due to the spatially varying Galactic absorption that would affect direct measurements of the auto-correlation function (ACF) of the AGN sample.

We are proposing to conduct a multicolor, synoptic infrared (IR) imaging survey of the Northern sky with a new, dedicated 6.5-meter telescope at San Pedro M\'artir (SPM) Observatory. This initiative is being developed in partnership with astronomy institutions in Mexico and the University of California. Read More

We present the first results of the measurements of angular auto-correlation functions (ACFs) of X-ray point sources detected in the XMM-Newton observations of the 2 deg2 COSMOS field (XMM-COSMOS). A significant positive signals have been detected in the 0.5-2 (SFT) band, in the angle range of 0. Read More

We report the results of our Chandra observations of six QSOs at $z\sim 3$ from the Palomer Transit Grism Survey. Our primary goal is to investigate the possible systematic change of $\alpha_{ox}$ between $z>4$ and $z\sim 3$, between which a rapid rise of luminous QSO number density with cosmic time is observed. The summed spectrum showed a power-law spectrum with photon index of $\Gamma \approx 1. Read More

(Abridged) We present results based on XMM-Newton observation of the nearby spiral galaxy M51 (NGC5194 and NGC5195). Two ULXs in NGC5194 show evidence for short-term variability, and all but two ULXs vary on long time scales (over a baseline of 2.5 years), providing strong evidence that these are accreting sources. Read More

In this proceedings paper, I overview the current status of the X-ray luminosity function of AGNs in the soft (0.5-2 keV) band, extended using XMM-Newton and Chandra survey data. We found that the number density of low luminosity AGNs peaks later in the history of the universe (z~1) than the that of high luminosity AGNs (z~1. Read More

We summarize the multiwavelength properties of X-ray sources detected in the 80 ks XMM-Newton observation of the Groth-Westphal Strip. We find 23 XMM-Newton sources within the WFPC2 fields. Ten spectroscopic redshifts are available from the DEEP and CFRS projects and 4 of these show broad Mg II emission (type 1 AGNs). Read More

We present three XMM-Newton observations of the ultra-luminous compact X-ray source Holmberg II X-1 in its historical brightest and faintest states. The source was in its brightest state in April 2002 with an isotropic X-ray luminosity of 2e40 erg/s but changed to a peculiar low/soft state in September 2002 in which the X-ray flux dropped by a factor of four and the spectrum softened. In all cases, a soft excess component, which can be described by a simple or multicolor disk blackbody (MCD; kT = 120-170 eV), is statistically required in addition to a power-law continuum (Gamma = 2. Read More

We investigate the cosmological evolution of the hard X-ray luminosity function (HXLF) of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) in the 2-10 keV luminosity range of 10^{41.5} - 10^{46.5} erg s^-1 as a function of redshift up to 3. Read More

We have observed a radio-quiet QSO Kaz 102 (z=0.136) with ASCA as a part of our program of complete spectral characterization of hard X-ray selected AGNs. We found that Kaz 102 shows unusual spectral properties. Read More

We show the results of the fluctuation analysis applied to the off-source areas from the two 1 Million second Chandra Deep Fields, including our new results on the Chandra Deep Field-South (CDF-S) in the 0.5-2 keV band in addition to those on the Chandra Deep Field-North (CDF-N), which have already been reported. The distribution of the X-ray counts in cells has been compared with the expectation from the Log N - Log S model to constrain the behavior of the source number density down to a factor of several lower than the source-detection limit. Read More

We report the results of fluctuation analysis of the off-source field from the 1 Million second Chandra observation of the Hubble Deep Field-North (HDF-N). The distribution of the counts in cells has been compared with the expectations from the Log N - Log S model to constrain the behavior of the source number density down to a factor of several lower than the source-detection limit. Our results show that the number counts in the soft band (0. Read More

We report on the XMM-Newton (XMM) observation of RXJ1053.7+5735, one of the most distant (z = 1.26) X-ray selected clusters of galaxies, which also shows an unusual double-lobed X-ray morphology, indicative of possible cluster-cluster interaction. Read More

We report the results of the analysis of ASCA/ROSAT observations of the compact luminous X-ray source found at the edge of the nearby star-forming dwarf galaxy Holmberg II (UGC 4305).Our ASCA spectrum revealed that the X-ray emission extends to the hard band and can be best described by a power-law with a photon spectral index of 1.9. Read More

This is the second paper of our investigation of the 0.5-2 keV soft X-ray luminosity function (SXLF) of active galactic nuclei (AGN) using results from ROSAT surveys of various depth. The large dynamic range of the combined sample, from shallow large-area ROSAT All-Sky Survey (RASS)-based samples to the satellite's deepest pointed observation on the Lockman Hole, enabled us to trace the behavior of the SXLF. Read More

We investigate the evolution of the 0.5-2 keV soft X-ray luminosity function (SXLF) of active galactic nuclei (AGN) using results from ROSAT surveys of various depth, ranging from shallow large-area ROSAT All-Sky Survey -based samples to the deepest pointed observation on the Lockman Hole. As previously found, the SXLF evolves rapidly as a function of redshift up to z\sim 1. Read More

We compare the evolution with cosmic time of the star-formation rate per comoving volume in galaxies and of the volume emissivity by Active Galactic Nuclei, as a clue to understand the relationship between black hole accretion and the formation of the surrounding structure. We find an interesting similarity between the evolution rates for the total populations of galaxies and AGNs, which indicates that, on average, the history of BH accretion tracks that of stellar formation in the hosting galaxies. Similarly, the evolution of luminous quasars parallels that of the stellar populations in massive spheroidal galaxies, in keeping with the locally established association of supermassive BHs and galactic bulges.

We have made cross-correlation analyses of (2 -- 15 keV) HEAO A2 and 1 keV ROSAT PSPC All-Sky Survey maps over a selected area ($\sim$ 4000 deg$^2$) with high galactic latitude (b>40 deg). We have calculated the correlations for the bright ROSAT sources and residual background separately with the \HEAO A2 TOT (2 -- 10 keV) and HRD (5 -- 15 keV) maps. The amplitude of the bright \ROSAT source -- A2 CCFs are consistent with expectations from model populations of AGNs and clusters of galaxies, which emit in both bands. Read More

We have cross-correlated the galaxies from the IRAS 2 Jy redshift survey sample and the 0.7 Jy projected sample with the all-sky cosmic X-ray background (CXB) map obtained from the HEAO-1 A2 experiment. We have developed a formulation to model the cross-correlation between CXB surface brightness and galaxy counts. Read More
