AGN as tracers of the Large scale structure: the golden contribution of Chandra

Nico Cappelluti, MPE/UMBC

The discovery with Chandra that the source number counts of AGN were rising in proximity of galaxy clusters opened the doors for the study of the interactions between the super-massive black holes and the large scale environment. After reviewing the first discoveries of the excess source density in high-z galaxy cluster and its evolution, I will show how the study of the clustering of AGN in high density environments has evolved by making use of the recent studies performed with wide field X-ray survey like XMM/Chandra-COSMOS and with archival studies with ROSAT.
