[Abridged] Tight correlations between supermassive black hole (SMBH) mass ($M_{\rm BH}$) and the properties of the host galaxy have useful implications for our understanding of the growth of SMBHs and evolution of galaxies. Here, we present newly observed correlations between $M_{\rm BH}$ and the host galaxy total UV$-$ [3.6] color ($\mathcal{C_{\rm UV,tot}}$, Pearson's r = $0.6-0.7$) for a sample of 67 galaxies (20 early-type galaxies and 47 late-type galaxies) with directly measured $M_{\rm… Expand
Defining the (Black Hole)–Spheroid Connection with the Discovery of Morphology-dependent Substructure in the M BH–n sph and M BH–R e,sph Diagrams: New Tests for Advanced Theories and Realistic Simulations
For 123 local galaxies with directly-measured black hole masses (MBH), we provide the host spheroid’s Sérsic index (nsph), effective half-light radius (Re,sph), and effective surface brightness (μe),Expand
BAYES-LOSVD: A Bayesian framework for non-parametric extraction of the line-of-sight velocity distribution of galaxies
We introduce BAYES-LOSVD, a novel implementation of the non-parametric extraction of line-of-sight velocity distributions (LOSVDs) in galaxies. We employ bayesian inference to obtain robust LOSVDsExpand


Black Hole Mass Scaling Relations for Early-Type Galaxies: $M_{BH}$-$M_{*,sph}$ and $M_{BH}$-$M_{*,gal}$
Analyzing a sample of 84 early-type galaxies with directly-measured super-massive black hole masses---nearly doubling the sample size of such galaxies with multi-component decompositions---aExpand
Black Hole Mass Scaling Relations for Spiral Galaxies. II. $M_{\rm BH}$-$M_{\rm *,tot}$ and $M_{\rm BH}$-$M_{\rm *,disk}$
Black hole mass ($M_{BH}$) scaling relations are typically derived using the properties of a galaxy's bulge and samples dominated by (high-mass) early-type galaxies. Studying late-type galaxiesExpand
Updating the (Supermassive Black Hole Mass) - (Spiral Arm Pitch Angle) Relation: A Strong Correlation for Galaxies with Pseudobulges
We have conducted an image analysis of the (current) full sample of 44 spiral galaxies with directly measured supermassive black hole (SMBH) masses, $M_{\rm BH}$, to determine each galaxy'sExpand
In our first paper, we performed a detailed (i.e. bulge, disks, bars, spiral arms, rings, halo, nucleus, etc.) decomposition of 66 galaxies, with directly measured black hole masses, $M_{BH}$, thatExpand
Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): Understanding the wavelength dependence of galaxy structure with bulge-disc decompositions
With a large sample of bright, low-redshift galaxies with optical–near-IR imaging from the GAMA survey we use bulge-disc decompositions to understand the wavelength-dependent behaviour ofExpand
The SINFONI Black Hole Survey: The Black Hole Fundamental Plane revisited and the paths of (co-) evolution of supermassive black holes and bulges
We investigate the correlations between the black hole mass $M_{BH}$, the velocity dispersion $\sigma$, the bulge mass $M_{Bu}$, the bulge average spherical density $\rho_h$ and its spherical halfExpand
Improved Dynamical Constraints on the Masses of the Central Black Holes in Nearby Low-mass Early-type Galactic Nuclei And the First Black Hole Determination for NGC 205
We improve the dynamical black hole (BH) mass estimates in three nearby low-mass early-type galaxies--NGC 205, NGC 5102, and NGC 5206. We use new \hst/STIS spectroscopy to fit the star formationExpand
How Mergers May Affect the Mass Scaling Relation between Gravitationally Bound Systems
Supermassive black hole (BH) masses ($m{c M}BH$ -->$m{c M}t SUBgt BHt/SUBgt $ -->) are strongly correlated with galaxy stellar bulge masses ($m{c M}bulge$ -->$m{c M}t SUBgt bulget/SUBgt $ -->), andExpand
Two channels of supermassive black hole growth as seen on the galaxies mass–size plane
We investigate the variation of black hole masses (Mbh) as a function of their host galaxy stellar mass (Mstar) and half-light radius (Re). We confirm that the scatter in Mbh within this plane isExpand
