A possible bias on the estimate of L bol /L edd in AGN as a function of luminosity and redshift Abstract. The BH mass (and the related Eddington ratio, l = L bol /L edd) in broad line AGN is usually evaluated by combining estimates (often indirect) of the BLR radius and of the F W HM of the broad lines, under the assumption that the BLR clouds are in… CONTINUE READING
