Accretion History of AGN




On the Growth of Black Holes Across Cosmic Time


This focused workshop addresses current observational efforts to measure the growth of supermassive black holes over the past 12 billion years, as measured from the light they emit. The observational constraints come from multiwavelength surveys, primarily at infrared, X-ray and optical wavelengths, comprising a “wedding cake” assortment of volumes (i.e., combinations of area and flux limit) spanning redshift-luminosity parameter space, especially GOODS/CANDELS, COSMOS and Stripe 82X. Topics will include luminosity functions, population synthesis models, black hole mass functions, spectral energy distributions, obscured and Compton-thick AGN, the X-ray background, observational signatures of early AGN, and AGN clustering.
