We have performed a spectral decomposition to search for recoiling supermassive black holes (rSMBHs) in Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) quasi-stellar objects (QSOs) with z < 0.25. Out of 1271 QSOs, we have identified 26 rSMBH candidates that are recoiling toward us. The projected recoil velocities range from −76 to −307 km s−1 with a mean of −149 ± 58 km s−1. Most of the rSMBH candidates are hosted by gas-rich luminous infrared galaxies (LIRGs)/ultra-luminous infrared galaxies (ULIRGs), but… 
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-Match Catalog. From the survey, we have detected a potential rSMBH, CXO
Recoiling Supermassive Black Hole in Changing-look AGN Mrk 1018
The spectral type of Mrk 1018 changed from Type 1.9 to 1 and returned back to 1.9 over a period of 40 years. We have investigated physical mechanisms responsible for the spectral change in Mrk 1018
The puzzling case of the radio-loud QSO 3C 186: a gravitational wave recoiling black hole in a young radio source?
Context. Radio-loud active galactic nuclei with powerful relativistic jets are thought to be associated with rapidly spinning black holes (BHs). BH spin-up may result from a number of processes,
A Likely Supermassive Black Hole Revealed by Its Einstein Radius in Hubble Frontier Fields Images
At cosmological distances, gravitational lensing can in principle provide direct mass measurements of supermassive black holes (SMBHs). Here, we directly estimate the mass of a SMBH in the brightest
Recoiling supermassive black hole escape velocities from dark matter haloes
We simulate recoiling black hole trajectories from z = 20 to z = 0 in dark matter haloes, quantifying how parameter choices affect escape velocities. These choices include the strength of dynamical
Spatially offset black holes in the Horizon-AGN simulation and comparison to observations
We study the displacements between the centres of galaxies and their supermassive black holes (BHs) in the cosmological hydrodynamical simulation Horizon-AGN, and in a variety of observations from
Measuring Supermassive Black Hole Peculiar Motion Using H2O Megamasers
H2O megamasers residing in the accretion disks of active galactic nuclei (AGNs) exhibit Keplerian rotation about the central supermassive black hole (SMBH). Such disk maser systems are excellent
