The DEEP2 Galaxy Redshift Survey: AEGIS observations of a Dual AGNat z = 0.7

Description: We present evidence for a dual Active Galactic Nucleus (AGN) within an early-type galaxy at z = 0.709 in the Extended Groth Strip. The galaxy lies on the red sequence, with absolute magnitude M{sub B} = -21.0 ( AB, w , with h = 0 0.7) and rest-frame color U - B = 1.38. Its optical spectrum shows strong, double-peaked [O III] emission lines and weak H{beta} emission, with Seyfert-like line ratios. The two narrow peaks are separate by 630 km s-1 in velocity and arise from two distinct regions, spatially resolved in the DEIMOS spectrum, with a projected physical separation of 1.2 kpc. HST/ACS imaging shows an early-type (E/S0) galaxy with hints of disturbed structure, consistent with the remnant of a dissipationless merger. Multiwavelength photometric information from the AEGIS consortium confirm the identification of a dust-obscured AGN in an early-type galaxy, with detections in X-ray, optical, infrared and radio wavebands. These data are most readily explained as a single galaxy harboring two AGN--the first such system to be observed in an otherwise typical early-type galaxy.

Evidence for Merging or Disruption of Red Galaxies from the Evolution of Their Clustering

Description: The formation and evolution of massive red galaxies form a crucial test of theories of galaxy formation based on hierarchical assembly. In this Letter we use observations of the clustering of luminous red galaxies from the Boötes field and N-body simulations to argue that about of the most luminous satellite galaxies appear to undergo merging or disruption within massive halos between and 0.5.

Erratum: "Is there a metallicity-luminosity relationship in active galactic nuclei? The case of narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies"

Description: This erratum corrects a computational error affecting the calculation of the intrinsic luminosities of several objects in the article "Is there a metallicity-luminosity relationship in active galactic nuclei? The case of narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies." This does not affect any of the main results of the article.
