The influence of morphology, AGN and environment on the quenching histories of galaxies

Abstract:

What drives the transition of galaxies from the disc dominated, star forming blue cloud to the elliptical dominated, quiescent red sequence? What role does the morphology, central supermassive black hole and galaxy environment play in this transition?

I have attempted to answer these questions by using Bayesian statistics to infer a simple star formation history (SFH) describing the time, tq, and exponential rate, τ, that quenching occurs in a galaxy. I use both...
