Active Galaxies at low and high redshift: Type II quasars, reionization,
and other insights from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.
Michael Strauss (Princeton)
I will describe the latest results on quasars and active galaxies from
the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. I will start with studies of quasars
with z>5.7, and what they can tell us about the epoch of
reionization. I will then switch to lower redshift, discussing the
nature of Seyfert galaxies, and the presence of luminous quasars
obscured by dust. The goal of this work is a determination of the
demographics of AGN from low redshift to high.
