Abstract: Recent optical studies of QSOs/AGN have revealed the unexpected result that the amplitude of QSO clustering does not evolve with redshift. The likely dependence of AGN clustering on the host halo mass and heterogeneity in the events that trigger the efficiency of feeding the central engine imply that the observed clustering may strongly vary with wavelength and other selection criteria. However, progress on these issues has been limited by the small size of redshift samples of AGN at other than optical wavelengths.

Here we describe a unique project that combines X-ray, UV, IR, radio and optically selected data to study the clustering of AGN. This will allow us to study samples of 104 AGN across a wide range of wavelengths, addressing many key questions about AGN.
