this table...




This table contains the results from a study of the multi-wavelength (from the mid-infrared to the hard X-ray) properties of a sample of 255 spectroscopically identified X-ray selected Type-2 AGN from the XMM-COSMOS survey. Most of them are obscured and the X-ray absorbing column density is determined by either X-ray spectral analyses (for 45% of the sample), or from hardness ratios. Spectral energy distributions (SEDs) were computed for all sources in the sample. The average SEDs in the optical band are dominated by the host-galaxy light, especially at low X-ray luminosities and redshifts. There is also a trend between X-ray and mid-infrared luminosity: the AGN contribution in the infrared is higher at higher X-ray luminosities. The authors have calculated bolometric luminosities, bolometric corrections, stellar masses and star formation rates (SFRs) for these sources using multi-component modeling to properly disentangle the emission associated with stellar light from that due to black hole accretion. For 90% of the sample, they also have the morphological classifications obtained with an upgraded version of the Zurich estimator of structural types (ZEST+). The authors find that, on average, type-2 AGN have lower bolometric corrections than type-1 AGN. Moreover, they confirm that the morphologies of AGN host-galaxies indicate that there is a preference for these type-2 AGN to be hosted in bulge-dominated galaxies with stellar masses greater than 1010 solar masses. For each source, this table contains the X-ray ID, spectroscopic redshift, logarithm of the 2-10keV luminosity, logarithm of the bolometric luminosity, bolometric correction, logarithm of the stellar mass, star formation rate, absolute magnitude MU, absolute magnitude MV, absolute magnitude MJ (Johnson-Kron-Cousin system), and the morphological class.

This table was created by the HEASARC in October 2011 based on CDS table J/A+A/534/A110 file table1.dat. Some of the values for the name parameter in the HEASARC's implementation of this table were corrected in April 2018.

HEASARC Implementation

The HEASARC has added the positions of these X-ray sources and their XMM-Newton source names by matching the source numbers given in this table with those in Brusa et al. (2010, ApJ, 716, 348, the XMMCOSMOID table in HEASARC Browse). The HEASARC has also made the following changes to the data values:

(1) Values of 0.00 for the bolometric correction kbol parameter (called hardxray_bc in this version) have been set to nulls: there were 15 such cases;

(2) The corresponding values of the (logarithm of the) bolometric luminosity for these 15 cases haves also been set to null values: in the original table, these had (unphysically large) values in the range 56 to 83.


The XMM-COSMOS identification (XID) Number for the source, from Cappelluti et al. (2009, A&A, 497, 635).

The name for the X-ray source using the naming convention recommended by the Dictionary of Nomenclature of Celestial Objects for XMM-COSMOS sources, viz. the 'XMMC' prefix and the source (XID) number, e.g., 'XMMC 5094'.

The name of the X-ray source in the form 'XMMU JHHMMSS.s+DDMMSS' where the prefix is the usual one for XMM-Newton sources and the remainder of the field is the J2000.0 equatorial coordinates truncated to 0.1 seconds of time in RA and to 1 arcsecond in Declination.

The Right Ascension of the source in the selected equinox. This was given in J2000.0 equatorial coordinates in decimal degrees to a precision of 10-5 degrees in the original Brusa et al. (2010, ApJ, 716, 348) table.

The Declination of the source in the selected equinox. This was given in J2000.0 equatorial coordinates in decimal degrees to a precision of 10-5 degrees in the original Brusa et al. (2010, ApJ, 716, 348) table.

The Galactic Longitude of the source.

The Galactic Latitude of the source.

The spectroscopic redshift of the source. The origin of the redshifts for these sources is given in Footnote 2 in the Section 2 of the reference paper.

The logarithm of the intrinsic X-Ray luminosity of the source in the hard X-ray (2 - 10 keV) energy band, in erg s-1.

The logarithm of the nuclear bolometric luminosity of the source, in erg s-1. The method used to estimate this parameter is discussed in Section 6 of the reference paper.

The hard-X-ray bolometric correction, kbol, of the source, defined as the ratio of the bolometric and hard X-ray luminosities.

The logarithm of the stellar mass of the associated galaxy, in solar masses.

The star formation rate of the associated galaxy, in solar masses per year.

The absolute U magnitude of the associated galaxy.

The absolute V magnitude of the associated galaxy.

The absolute J magnitude of the associated galaxy.

The morphological classification of the associated galaxy (Type-2 AGN host), coded from 0 to 99 as follows:

               0 = elliptical
               1 = S0
               2 = bulge-dominated
               3 = intermediate-bulge
               4 = disk-dominated
               5 = irregular
               6 = compact/irregular
               7 = compact
               8 = unresolved/compact
               9 = blended
              10 = bulge-dominated/close-companion
              11 = intermediate-bulge/close-companion
              12 = S0/close-companion
              23 = possible mergers
              99 = no classification
