Supermassive black hole (SMBH) mass estimates are derived for 1743 galaxies from the Millennium Galaxy Catalogue (MGC) using the recently revised empirical relation between SMBH mass and the luminosity of the host spheroid. The MGC spheroid luminosities are based on R 1/n bulge plus exponential-disc decompositions. The majority of black hole masses reside between 10 6 M ⊙ and an upper limit of 2 x 10 9 M ⊙ . Using previously determined space-density weights, we derive the SMBH mass function…

The near-IR Mbh–L and Mbh–n relations
We present near-infrared (near-IR) surface photometry (2D profiling) for a sample of 29 nearby galaxies for which supermassive black hole (SMBH) masses are constrained. The data are derived from the
Dark-ages reionization and galaxy formation simulation - X. The small contribution of quasars to reionization
Motivated by recent measurements of the number density of faint AGN at high redshift, we investigate the contribution of quasars to reionization by tracking the growth of central supermassive black
Supermassive black holes: connecting the growth to the cosmic star formation rate
We present a model connecting the cosmic star formation rate (CSFR) to the growth of supermassive black holes. Considering that the evolution of the massive black hole is dominated by accretion
The formation of supermassive black holes from Population III.1 seeds. I. Cosmic formation histories and clustering properties
We calculate cosmic distributions in space and time of the formation sites of the first, 'Pop III.1' stars, exploring a model in which these are the progenitors of all supermassive black holes

This is the first paper in a series aimed at modeling the black hole (BH) mass function, from the stellar to the intermediate to the (super)massive regime. In the present work, we focus on stellar

Supermassive black hole mass functions at intermediate redshifts from spheroid and AGN luminosity functions
Redshift evolution of supermassive black hole mass functions (BHMFs) is investigated up to z ∼ 1. BHMFs at intermediate redshifts are calculated in two ways. One way is from early-type galaxy
