A2_1 Investigating the sensitivity of the intrinsic Baldwin effect to variations in the starlight correction factor

Christopher Johnson, Sam Rolfe, Ry Evill, Mark Wilson


A well investigated phenomenon in the study of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) is that of the Broad-Line Baldwin Effect. Many correction factors are used in the process of reducing data to the direct form of the Baldwin Effect, including removal of time delay, narrow line components, galactic starlight surrounding the nucleus, and the reddening of the data. In this paper the variation in the Baldwin slope, ΞΎ, with variations in the value of the galactic starlight correction factor is examined quantitatively.
