This work aims at studying the $M_{BH}-M_{dyn}$ relation of a sample of $2 5-10$) and the gas kinematics is spatially resolved and dominated by ordered rotation. The estimated dynamical masses place $6$ out of $10$ quasars above the local relation yielding to a $M_{BH}/M_{dyn}$ ratios $\sim10\times$ higher than those estimated in low-$z$ galaxies. On the other hand, we found that $4$ quasars at $z\sim 4-6$ have dynamical-to-BH mass ratios consistent with what is observed in early-type galaxies… 
Limits to Rest-frame Ultraviolet Emission from Far-infrared-luminous z ≃ 6 Quasar Hosts
We report on a Hubble Space Telescope search for rest-frame ultraviolet emission from the host galaxies of five far-infrared-luminous $z\simeq{}6$ quasars and the $z=5.85$ hot-dust free quasar SDSS
The host galaxies of z = 7 quasars: predictions from the BlueTides simulation
We examine the properties of the host galaxies of $z=7$ quasars using the large volume, cosmological hydrodynamical simulation BlueTides. We find that the 10 most massive black holes and the 191
Kiloparsec-scale ALMA Imaging of [C ii] and Dust Continuum Emission of 27 Quasar Host Galaxies at z ∼ 6
We present a study of the [CII] 158micron line and underlying far-infrared (FIR) continuum emission of 27 quasar host galaxies at z~6, traced by the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array at a
The physical properties and impact of AGN outflows from high to low redshift
Abstract Feedback from active galactic nuclei (AGN) on their host galaxies, in the form of gas outflows capable of quenching star formation, is considered a major player in galaxy evolution. However,
The Kinematics of z ≳ 6 Quasar Host Galaxies
We explore the kinematics of 27 z ≳ 6 quasar host galaxies observed in [C ii] 158 μm ([C ii]) emission with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array at a resolution of ≈025. We find that nine
ALPINE: A Large Survey to Understand Teenage Galaxies
A multiwavelength study of galaxies is important to understand their formation and evolution. Only in the recent past, thanks to the Atacama Large (Sub) Millimeter Array (ALMA), were we able to study
A dusty compact object bridging galaxies and quasars at cosmic dawn.
Understanding how super-massive black holes form and grow in the early Universe has become a major challenge1,2 since it was discovered that luminous quasars existed only 700 million years after the
On the Connection between Supermassive Black Holes and Galaxy Growth in the Reionization Epoch
The correlation between the mass of supermassive black holes (SMBHs; BH ) and their host galaxies ( ⋆ ) in the reionization epoch provides valuable constraints on their early growth. High-redshift
ALMA 200 pc Imaging of a z ∼ 7 Quasar Reveals a Compact, Disk-like Host Galaxy
We present 0.″035 resolution (∼200 pc) imaging of the 158 μm [C ii] line and the underlying dust continuum of the z = 6.9 quasar J234833.34–305410.0. The 18 hour Atacama Large
Host galaxies of high-redshift quasars: SMBH growth and feedback
The properties of quasar-host galaxies might be determined by the growth and feedback of their supermassive black holes (SMBHs, 108−10 M⊙). We investigate such connection with a suite of


High-redshift quasars and their host galaxies – I. Kinematical and dynamical properties and their tracers
Observations of high-redshift quasars provide information on the massive black holes (MBHs) powering them and the galaxies hosting them. Current observations of z ≳ 6 hosts, at sub-millimetre
Quasar outflows at z ≥ 6: the impact on the host galaxies
We investigate quasar outflows at $z \geq 6$ by performing zoom-in cosmological hydrodynamical simulations. By employing the SPH code GADGET-3, we zoom in the $2 R_{200}$ region around a $2 \times
Probing the Coevolution of Supermassive Black Holes and Quasar Host Galaxies
At low redshift, there are fundamental correlations between the mass of supermassive black holes (BH) and the mass (bulge) and luminosity of the host galaxy bulge. We investigate the same relation at
ALMA and HST kiloparsec-scale imaging of a quasar-galaxy merger at $z\approx 6.2$.
We present kpc-scale ALMA and HST imaging of the quasar PJ308-21 at $z$=$6.2342$, tracing dust, gas (via the [CII] 158 $\mu$m line) and young stars. At a resolution of $\sim0.3''$ ($\approx1.7$ kpc),
On the cosmological evolution of the black hole - host galaxy relation in quasars
Quasars are useful tracers of the cosmological evolution of the black hole mass–galaxy relation. We compare the expectations of semi-analytical models (SAMs) of galaxy evolution to the largest
Probing the Coevolution of Supermassive Black Holes and Galaxies Using Gravitationally Lensed Quasar Hosts
In the present-day universe, supermassive black hole masses (MBH) appear to be strongly correlated with their galaxy’s bulge luminosity, among other properties. In this study, we explore the
Inferences on the Relations Between Central Black Hole Mass and Total Galaxy Stellar Mass in the high-redshift Universe
At the highest redshifts, z>6, several tens of luminous quasars have been detected. The search for fainter AGN, in deep X-ray surveys, has proven less successful, with few candidates to date. An

We present galaxy stellar mass functions (GSMFs) at $z=$ 4-8 from a rest-frame ultraviolet (UV) selected sample of $\sim$4500 galaxies, found via photometric redshifts over an area of $\sim$280
The building up of the black hole–stellar mass relation
We derive the growth of SMBHs relative to the stellar content of their host galaxy predicted under the assumption of BH accretion triggered by galaxy encounters occurring during their merging
The quasar relation through cosmic time – II. Evidence for evolution from z = 3 to the present age
We study the dependence of the MBH–Mhost relation on the redshift up to z = 3 for a sample of 96 quasars, the host galaxy luminosities of which are known. Black hole masses were estimated assuming
