dc.description.abstractActive galactic nuclei (AGN) are an area of astronomy research with many questions still unanswered. This paper uses x-ray data taken from XMM-Newton to correlate different properties of AGN. In particular, we correlate morphology, luminosity, and redshift. We attempt to explain the trends we see, drawing on insight from the current scientific literature on AGN. We find trends consistent with a classification scheme based primarily on line of sight obscuration. Among other trends, obscured AGN have lower redshifts and luminosities, while unobscured AGN have higher redshifts and luminosities.en_US
