Science Projects

Below we provide a list of primary science projects that the CARS team has defined as the major themes for the survey. This list is certainly not complete in terms of all aspects that can or will be studies with the multi-wavelength data set when additional observations are added.

BH accretion vs. SFR/gas content across all host galaxy scales

In large AGN samples, a correlation between star formation rate and BH accretion rate has been often observed. With CARS we will investigate the relation between BH accretion and the SFR of the host galaxies in more detail than possible before and compare them with the predications from the numerical simulations
