Star Formation in LINER host galaxies at z 0.3

Silvia Tommasin (School of Physics and Astronomy, Tel Aviv University)

Low Ionization Nuclear Emission-line Regions (LINERs) are
characterized by low ionization AGN optical emission lines from the
center of their host galaxies.
Those latter are found to have a surprisingly high FIRs luminosity by
observations with Herschel/PACS of a sample of LINERs at z 0.3.
I will discuss possible causes and consequences of FIR properties of
LINERs host galaxies, how they affect the star formation rate
estimates, and their connections with the AGN emission.
