Seminario: AGN and Star formation in active galaxies: a multi-wavelength review

Speaker: Eleonora Sani


Two main physical processes shape the nuclear regions in active galaxies: an intense star formation (which can be as powerful as a starburst) and an active galactic nucleus. While the existence of a SF-AGN connection is undisputed, still it is not clear which process dominates the energetic output in both local and high redshift Universe. Moreover, there is no consensus on whether AGN fuelling is synchronous with SF or follows it during post-starburst phase, or on how and when feedback processes are in action.

Here I first review how to disentangle the relative SF-AGN co
