Is AGN Variability Correlated with Other AGN Properties?—ZDCF Analysis of Small Samples of Sparse Light Curves
A new method for estimating the cross-correlation function (CCF) of light curves, the z-transformed discrete correlation function (ZDCF), is demonstrated by uncovering a noisy correlation between AGN variability timescale and luminosity in a small sample of sparsely sampled light curves.
