We present new accurate near-infrared (NIR) spheroid (bulge) structural parameters obtained by a two-dimensional image analysis of all galaxies with a direct black hole (BH) mass determination. As expected, NIR bulge luminosities Lbul and BH masses are tightly correlated, and if we consider only those galaxies with a secure BH mass measurement and an accurate Lbul (27 objects), the spread of MBH-Lbul is similar to MBH-σe, where σe is the effective stellar velocity dispersion. We find an…

ON THE BLACK HOLE MASS-BULGE MASS RELATION
We have reexamined the relation between the mass of the central black holes in nearby galaxies, Mbh, and the stellar mass of the surrounding spheroid or bulge, Mbulge. For a total of 30 galaxies
The Spitzer/IRAC view of black hole–bulge scaling relations
We present a mid-infrared investigation of the scaling relations between supermassive black hole masses (M BH ) and the structural parameters of the host spheroids in local galaxies. This work is
The Origin of the Intrinsic Scatter in the Relation Between Black Hole Mass and Bulge Luminosity for Nearby Active Galaxies
We investigate the origin of the intrinsic scatter in the correlation between black hole mass ( -->MBH) and bulge luminosity ( -->Lbul) in a sample of 45 massive, local ( -->z 0.35) type 1 active

From a sample of 72 galaxies with reliable supermassive black hole masses M bh, we derive the M bh-(host spheroid luminosity, L) relation for (1) the subsample of 24 core-Sersic galaxies with
On the correlations between galaxy properties and supermassive black hole mass
We use a large sample of upper limits and accurate estimates of supermassive black hole (SMBH) masses coupled with libraries of host galaxy velocity dispersions, rotational velocities and photometric
Cosmic Evolution of Black Holes and Spheroids. I. The MBH-σ Relation at z = 0.36
We test the evolution of the correlation between black hole mass and bulge velocity dispersion (MBH-σ), using a carefully selected sample of 14 Seyfert 1 galaxies at z = 0.36±0.01. We measure
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
The Mass Relations between Supermassive Black Holes and Their Host Galaxies at 1 < z < 2 with HST-WFC3
Correlations between the mass of a supermassive black hole and the properties of its host galaxy (e.g., total stellar mass (M*), luminosity (Lhost)) suggest an evolutionary connection. A powerful
