Quasar mass functions across cosmic time: Co-Evolution of Central Black Holes and Galaxies

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

I present mass functions of actively accreting black holes detected in different quasar surveys which in concert cover a wide range of cosmic history. I briefly address what we learn from these mass functions. I summarize the motivation for such a study and the methods by which we determine black hole masses.
