Supermassive black hole demography: the match between the local and accreted mass functions
We have performed a detailed analysis of the local supermassive black hole (SMBH) mass function based on both kinematic and photometric data and we have derived an accurate analytical fit in theExpand
The Universal Rotation Curve of Spiral Galaxies: I. the Dark Matter Connection
We use a homogeneous sample of about 1100 optical and radio rotation curves (RCs) and relative surface photometry to investigate the main mass structure properties of spirals, over a range of 6Expand
The extended rotation curve and the dark matter halo of M33
We present the 21-cm rotation curve of the nearby galaxy M33 out to a galactocentric distance of 16 kpc (13 disk scale-lengths). The rotation curve keeps rising out to the last measured point andExpand
The Baryon content of the Universe
We estimate the baryon mass density of the Universe due to the stars in galaxies and the hot gas in clusters and groups of galaxies. The galaxy contribution is computed by using the Efstathiou, EllisExpand
The dark matter density at the Sun’s location
Aims. We derive the value of the dark matter density at the Sun’s location ( ) without globally mass-modeling the Galaxy. Methods. The proposed method relies on the local equation of centrifugalExpand
The Local Dark Matter Density
We present the recent robust determination of the value of the Dark Matter density at the Sun's location ($\rho_\odot$) with a technique that does not rely on a global mass-modeling of the Galaxy.Expand
Mass function of dormant black holes and the evolution of active galactic nuclei
Under the assumption that accretion onto massive black holes powers active galactic nuclei (AGN), the mass function (MF) of the BHs responsible for their past activity is estimated. For this, we takeExpand
New Relationships between Galaxy Properties and Host Halo Mass, and the Role of Feedbacks in Galaxy Formation
We present new relationships between halo masses (Mh) and several galaxy properties, including r*-band luminosities (Lr), stellar (Mstar) and baryonic masses, stellar velocity dispersions (?), andExpand
Dust and star formation properties of a complete sample of local galaxies drawn from the Planck Early Release Compact Source Catalogue
We combine Planck High Frequency Instrument data at 857, 545, 353 and 217 GHz with data from Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), Spitzer, IRAS and Herschel to investigate the properties of aExpand
A constant dark matter halo surface density in galaxies
The recent finding that the central surface density � 0Dr0ρ0 of galaxy dark matter halos, where r0 and ρ0 are the halo core radius and central density, is nearly constant and independent of galaxy luminosity is confirmed. Expand
