THE SLOPE OF THE BLACK HOLE MASS VERSUS VELOCITY DISPERSION CORRELATION
Observations of nearby galaxies reveal a strong correlation between the mass of the central dark object MBH and the velocity dispersionof the host galaxy, of the form logðMBH=M� Þ¼ � þ � logð�=� 0Þ;
A Relationship between Nuclear Black Hole Mass and Galaxy Velocity Dispersion
We describe a correlation between the mass Mbh of a galaxy's central black hole and the luminosity-weighted line-of-sight velocity dispersion σe within the half-light radius. The result is based on a
The M-σ and M-L Relations in Galactic Bulges, and Determinations of Their Intrinsic Scatter
We derive improved versions of the relations between supermassive black hole mass (M BH) and host-galaxy bulge velocity dispersion (σ) and luminosity (L; the M-σ and M-L relations), based on 49 M BH
The Demography of massive dark objects in galaxy centers
We construct dynamical models for a sample of 36 nearby galaxies with Hubble Space Telescope (HST) photometry and ground-based kinematics. The models assume that each galaxy is axisymmetric, with a
The centers of early-type galaxies with HST. IV. Central parameter relations
We analyze Hubble Space Telescope surface-brightness profiles of 61 elliptical galaxies and spiral bulges (hot galaxies). Luminous hot galaxies have cuspy cores with steep outer power-law profiles
The Masses of Nuclear Black Holes in Luminous Elliptical Galaxies and Implications for the Space Density of the Most Massive Black Holes
Black hole (BH) masses predicted from the M•-σ relationship conflict with predictions from the M•-L relationship for high-luminosity galaxies, such as brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs). The M•-L
THE BLACK HOLE MASS IN M87 FROM GEMINI/NIFS ADAPTIVE OPTICS OBSERVATIONS
We present the stellar kinematics in the central 2'' of the luminous elliptical galaxy M87 (NGC 4486), using laser adaptive optics to feed the Gemini telescope integral-field spectrograph,
Black Hole Mass Estimates from Reverberation Mapping and from Spatially Resolved Kinematics
Black hole (BH) masses that have been measured by reverberation mapping in active galaxies fall significantly below the correlation between bulge luminosity and BH mass determined from spatially
The centers of early-type galaxies with hubble space telescope. VI. Bimodal central surface brightness profiles
We combine several HST investigations on the central structure of early-type galaxies to generate a large sample of surface photometry. The studies selected were those that used the Nuker law to
