J/ApJ/702/767  CIV and FeKα Baldwin effects in AGNs       (Wu+, 2009)

Probing the origins of the C IV and Fe kα Baldwin Effects. Wu J., Vanden Berk D.E., Brandt W.N., Schneider D.P., Gibson R.R., Wu J. <Astrophys. J., 702, 767-778 (2009)> =2009ApJ...702..767W

The UV/optical spectra are drawn from the Hubble Space Telescope, International Ultraviolet Explorer and Sloan Digital Sky Survey archives. The X-ray spectra are from the Chandra and XMM-Newton archives. We apply correlation and partial-correlation analyses to the equivalent widths (EWs), continuum monochromatic luminosities, and αox, which characterizes the relative X-ray to UV brightness. The EW of the CIVλ1549 emission line is correlated with both αox and luminosity. In our sample, narrow Fe Kα 6.4keV emission lines are detected in 50 objects. File Summary:
