IRAC view of black hole – bulge scaling relations

  title={IRAC view of black hole – bulge scaling relations},
  author={Eleonora Sani and Alessandro Marconi and Leslie Hunt and G. Risaliti},
We present a mid-infrared investigation of the scaling relations between supermassive black hole masses (MBH) and the structural parameters of the host spheroids in local galaxies. This work is based on 2D bulge-disc decompositions of Spitzer/IRAC 3.6 μm images of 57 galaxies with MBH estimates. We first verify the accuracy of our decomposition by examining… CONTINUE READING
