Searching in IFS Surveys almost identical-twin galaxies differing in nuclear activity
del Moral-Castro, I. García-Lorenzo, B and Ramos Almeida, C.


All massive galaxies seems to harbour a supermassive black hole at the centre, suggesting that all galaxies experience nuclear activity for at least some part of their evolution. Therefore, unveil the mechanisms that trigger to active galactic nuclei (AGN) is crucial for understanding the formation and evolution of galaxies.
Legacy integral field surveys (e.g. CALIFA or MANGA) provide the opportunity of selecting large scale almost-identical pairs of isolated galaxies differing only in nuclear activity. This poster will present the search methodologies followed to identify, among this large number of galaxies, these pairs matched in galactic properties such as redshift, inclination, mass and magnitude.
