XMM-NEWTON SCIENTIFIC HIGHLIGHTS: X-RAY SPECTROSCOPIC POPULATION STUDIES OF AGN

Matteo Guainazzi

Abstract


In this paper I review the contribution that the XMM-Newton ESA X-ray mission has given to our understanding of Active Galactic Nuclei, together with other operational, and complementary, X-ray facilities. I will focus on answering three basic questions: a) to which extent do AGN share the same engine?; b) to which extent are AGN “relativistic machines”?; c) to which extent do AGN affect their immediate environment?
