Description

Understanding the inverse equivalent width - luminosity relationship (Baldwin Effect), the topic of this meeting, requires extracting information on continuum and emission line parameters from samples of AGN. We wish to discover whether, and how, different subsets of measured parameters may correlate with each other. This general problem is the domain of Principal Components Analysis (PCA).
