Investigating the connection between AGNs and their host galaxy properties

Many studies propose that the evolution of the galaxies related to the growth of the central super massive black hole (SMBH). One way to study the AGN-galaxy coevolution is to investigate the AGN impacts on their host galaxies. In our work, we present the study of the host galaxy properties of the X-ray selected AGNs in the Chandra Deep Field South. We did the AGN/host galaxy decomposition based on the SED fitting results of our well-trained AGN-galaxy hybrids, and made corrections for the dust extinction and AGN contribution to get more accurate AGN host fluxes. For the AGN-dominated type 1 AGNs, it is not surprising to find that their host are strongly effected by the AGN contribution rather than the dust extinction. While for the host-dominated type 2 AGN, the correction for the dust extinction is larger than the correction for the AGN contribution. Similar to normal galaxies, AGN host colors also present bimodality in the color-magnitude diagram. However, there are more AGN hosts appear in the green valley. This shows that the green-valley objects could be in the evolutionary stage between star-forming (blue cloud) and passive (red sequence) galaxies, undergoing the quenching of star formation. I will present the host-galaxy stellar properties of different types of AGNs to further study the AGN impact on the galaxy evolution.
