Description

I will briefly review the evidence for high-velocity (mildly relativistic) and massive winds in Active Galactic Nuclei. I will then highlight some new recent results obtained in X-rays (mostly using deep XMM and Chandra observations) and at multi-frequencies for both low-z AGNs and high-z QSOs. Among other things, these studies indicate that massive, high-velocity, outflows may be more common than previously thought.
