ALMA Observations Show Major Mergers Among the Host Galaxies of Fast-growing, High-redshift, Supermassive Black Holes

Description: This article presents new ALMA band-7 data for a sample of six luminous quasars at z ≃ 4.8, powered by fast-growing supermassive black holes (SMBHs) with rather uniform properties.

A new, faint population of X-ray transients

Description: This article reports on the detection of a remarkable new fast high-energy transient found in the Chandra Deep Field-South, robustly associated with a faint host in the CANDELS survey.

Tracing the accretion history of supermassive black holes through X-ray variability: results from the Chandra Deep Field-South

Description: This article studies the X-ray variability properties of distant active galactic nuclei (AGNs) in the Chandra Deep Field-South region over 17 yr, up to z ~ 4, and compare them with those predicted by models based on local samples.

Black Hole Growth Is Mainly Linked to Host-galaxy Stellar Mass Rather Than Star Formation Rate

Description: This article investigates the dependence of black hole accretion rate (BHAR) on host-galaxy star formation rate (SFR) and stellar mass in the CANDELS/GOODS-South field in the redshift range of 0.5 ⩽ z < 2.0.
