We report the results of an investigation to determine the nature of the offset active galactic nucleus (AGN) found in the source CXO J101527.2+625911. Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra X-ray observatory data had suggested that the offset AGN, which has an angular separation of only 0\farcs26 from the center of the host galaxy, is a recoiled Super Massive Black Hole (rSMBH). We carried out high angular resolution observations with both the VLBA (1.54 GHz) and the VLA (10.0 GHz \& 33.0 GHz) and… Expand

The Intriguing Parsec-scale Radio Structure in the “Offset AGN” KISSR 102
We report the detection of an intriguing parsec-scale radio source in the "offset AGN" candidate, KISSR 102. The elliptical host galaxy includes two optical nuclei at a projected separation of 1.54Expand


A Potential Recoiling Supermassive Black Hole CXO J101527.2+625911
We have carried out a systematic search for recoiling supermassive black holes (rSMBH) using the Chandra Source and SDSS Cross Matched Catalog. From the survey, we have detected a potential rSMBH,Expand
Exploring the infrared/radio correlation at high redshift
We have analysed the 24-μm properties of a radio-selected sample in the Subaru-XMM-Newton Deep Field in order to explore the behaviour of the far-infrared/radio (FIR/radio) relation at highExpand
Radio Sources in Low-Luminosity Active Galactic Nuclei. I. VLA Detections of Compact, Flat-Spectrum Cores
We report a high-resolution (02), 15 GHz survey of a sample of 48 low-luminosity active galactic nuclei with the Very Large Array. Compact radio emission has been detected above a flux density of 1.1Expand
A new diagnostic of active galactic nuclei : revealing highly absorbed systems at redshift >0.3.
We introduce the Mass-Excitation (MEx) diagnostic to identify active galactic nuclei (AGNs) in galaxies at intermediate redshift. In the absence of near-infrared spectroscopy, necessary for usingExpand
Revised Mass-to-Light Ratios For Nearby Galaxy Groups and Clusters
We present a detailed investigation of the cluster stellar mass-to-light (M*/L) ratio and cumulative stellar masses, derived on a galaxy-by-galaxy basis, for 12 massive (M500 ~ 10^14 - 10^15 Msun),Expand
Compact starbursts in ultraluminous infrared galaxies
The 40 ultraluminous galaxies in the IRAS Bright Galaxy Sample of sources stronger than S = 5.24 Jy at lambda = 60 microns were mapped with approximately 0.25 arcsec resolution at 8.44 GHz.Expand
A Comparison of Stellar and Gaseous Kinematics in the Nuclei of Active Galaxies
To investigate the relationship between black holes and their host galaxies, many groups have used the width of the [O III] λ5007 line as a substitute for the stellar velocity dispersion (σ*) ofExpand
Coevolution (Or Not) of Supermassive Black Holes and Host Galaxies: Supplemental Material
This is the Supplemental Material to Kormendy and Ho 2013, ARAA, 51, 511 (arXiv:1304.7762). Section S1 summarizes indirect methods that are used to estimate black hole (BH) masses for galaxies withExpand
Retaining black holes with very large recoil velocities
Recent numerical simulations of binary black hole mergers show the possibility of producing very large recoil velocities (>3000 km s-1). Kicks of this magnitude should be sufficient to eject theExpand
Pairing of Supermassive Black Holes in unequal-mass galaxy mergers
We examine the pairing process of supermassive black holes (SMBHs) down to scales of 20-100 pc using a set of N-body/SPH simulations of binary mergers of disk galaxies with mass ratios of 1:4 andExpand
