We have measured the spectral energy distribution (SED) of the host galaxy of the zs = 1.7 gravitationally lensed quasar SDSS J1004+4112 from 0.44-8.0 μm (0.16-3.0 μm in the rest frame). The large
We present a simple model for the relationship between quasars, galaxies, and dark matter halos from 0.5 < z < 6. In the model, black hole (BH) mass is linearly related to galaxy mass, and galaxies
We use Hubble Space Telescope/Advanced Camera for Surveys images and a photometric catalog of the Cosmic Evolution Survey (COSMOS) field to analyze morphologies of the host galaxies of ~400 active
The black hole - bulge mass relation of Active Galactic Nuclei in the Extended Chandra Deep Field - South Survey
We present results from a study to determine whether relations, established in the local Universe, between the mass of supermassive black holes (SMBHs) and their host galaxies are in place at higher
The clustering of intermediate-redshift quasars as measured by the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey
We measure the quasar two-point correlation function over the redshift range 2.2 < z < 2.8 using data from the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey. We use a homogeneous subset of the data
Probing the M-sigma Relation in the Non-Local Universe Using Red QSOs
We describe a method to measure the M-sigma relation in the non-local universe using dust-obscured QSOs. We present results from a pilot sample of nine 2MASS red QSOs with redshifts 0.14 0.1 AGN
Comparing simple quasar demographics models
Author(s): Veale, M; White, M; Conroy, C | Abstract: This paper explores several simple model variations for the connections among quasars, galaxies, and dark matter haloes for redshifts 1 l z l 6. A
HI 21-cm absorption and unified schemes of active galactic nuclei
In this paper we further explore the implications that this has for the currently popular consensus that it is the orientation of the circumnuclear obscuring torus which determines whether absorption
A survey for redshifted molecular and atomic absorption lines – II. Associated H i, OH and millimetre lines in the z≳ 3 Parkes quarter-Jansky flat-spectrum sample
We present the results of a z ≥ 2.9 survey for Hi 21-cm and molecular absorption in the hosts of radio quasars using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope and the Tidbinbilla 70-m telescope. Although
Precision cosmology with time delay lenses: high resolution imaging requirements
Lens time delays are a powerful probe of cosmology, provided that the gravitational potential of the main deflector can be modeled with sufficient precision. Recent work has shown that this can be


A NICMOS imaging study of high-z quasar host galaxies
We present the first results from a major Hubble Space Telescope programme designed to investigate the cosmological evolution of quasar host galaxies from z ≃ 2 to the present day. Here we describe J
The Host Galaxy of the Lensed Quasar Q0957+561*
Infrared images of the Q0957+561 gravitational lens obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope show two large (~5'') lensed images of the zs = 1.41 quasar host galaxy. Parts of the host galaxy are
NICMOS Imaging of the Host Galaxies of z ~ 2-3 Radio-quiet Quasars
We have made a deep NICMOS imaging study of a sample of five z ~ 2-3 radio-quiet quasars with low absolute nuclear luminosities, and we have detected apparent host galaxies in all of these. Most of
An Infrared Einstein Ring in the Gravitational Lens PG 1115+080*
Hubble Space Telescope observations of the gravitational lens PG 1115+080 in the infrared show the known zl = 0.310 lens galaxy and reveal the zs = 1.722 quasar host galaxy. The main lens galaxy G is
The Infrared Einstein Ring in the Gravitational Lens MG J1131+0456 and the Death of the Dusty Lens Hypothesis*
We have obtained and modeled NICMOS images of the Einstein ring lens system MG J1131+0456, which show that its lens galaxy is an H = 18.6 mag, transparent, early-type galaxy at a redshift of zl 0.84;
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
Inward Bound—The Search for Supermassive Black Holes in Galactic Nuclei
Dynamical searches reveal central dark objects with masses"" 106 to 109.5 M0 in the Galaxy, M31, M32, M87, NGC 3115, NGC 3377, NGC 4258, and NGC 4594. Indirect arguments suggest but do not prove that
Reverberation Measurements for 17 Quasars and the Size-Mass-Luminosity Relations in Active Galactic Nuclei
Correlated variations in the line and continuum emission from active galactic nuclei (AGNs) can be used to determine the size and geometry of the broad emission-line regions (BLRs). We have spectro-
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
Cosmological Applications of Gravitational Lensing
The discovery by Walsh et al (1979) of the first bona fide gravitational lens, the doubly-imaged quasar, Q0957 + 561, happened at an opportune time, following several prescient theoretical papers,
