Galaxy mergers can lead to an enormous increase in the AGN luminosity!

The figure shows the history of three of the most luminous AGN in our 68Mpc/h simulation at z=2. All of them show evidence for mergers before the luminosity peak.
The upper colour bar illustrates the age of the stars and the lower one the gas temperature (from low to high).
