Variability-Selected Low-Luminosity Active Galactic Nuclei in the 4 Ms Chandra Deep Field-South

Description: This article demonstrates that the observed variability cannot be explained by X-ray Binary populations or ultraluminous X-ray sources, so the variability is most likely caused by accretion onto a supermassive black hole.

On The Performance of Quasar Reverberation Mapping in the Era of Time-Domain Photometric Surveys

Description: This article quantitatively assesses, by means of comprehensive numerical simulations, the ability of broadband photometric surveys to recover the broad emission line region size in quasars under various observing conditions and for a wide range of object properties.
