The evolution of AGN host galaxies throughout the last 9 billion years
AGN are capable of releasing enormous quantities of energy over their lifetimes, comparable to the binding energy of their hosts. In light of this, many galaxy-evolution simulations now incorporate AGN feedback as a form of self regulation for BH growth and star formation. The links between AGN and host evolution should be reflected in the galaxy characteristics. By harnessing the immense statistical power of the SDSS, Bootes and DEEP2 surveys, we identified AGN at X-ray, infrared and radio wavelengths out to z=1.4. We found that BHs undergoing radiatively-efficient accretion appear to be hosted in a separate and distinct galaxy population than AGN undergoing powerful mechanically dominated accretion. Radiatively efficient AGN appear to be preferentially hosted in modest star-forming galaxies, with little dependence on AGN or galaxy luminosity. AGN exhibiting radio-emitting jets due to mechanically-dominated accretion are almost exclusively observed in massive, passive galaxies. Crucially, we show that these different accretion-mode AGN have remained as separate galaxy populations throughout the last 9 Gyr.
