MASS MEASUREMENTS OF AGN FROM MULTI-LORENTZIAN MODELS OF X-RAY VARIABILITY. I. SAMPLING EFFECTS IN THE σ rms-MBH CORRELATION

Abstract

Recent X-ray variability studies on a large sample of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) have suggested that the fractional rms variability amplitude, σrms, seems to correlate with black hole mass, MBH. The fact that the rms amplitude can be easily obtained from the observed X-ray light curves has motivated the theoretical modeling of the σ rms-MBH relationship… (More)
