We combine Hubble Space Telescope spectroscopy and ground-based integral-field data from the SAURON and OASIS instruments to study the central black hole in the nearby elliptical galaxy NGC 3379. From these data, we obtain kinematics of both the stars and the nuclear gaseous component. Axisymmetric three-integral models of the stellar kinematics find a black hole of mass 1.4 +2.6 -1.0 x 10 8 M ⊙ (3σ errors). These models also probe the velocity distribution in the immediate vicinity of the… Expand
A STELLAR DYNAMICAL MEASUREMENT OF THE BLACK HOLE MASS IN THE MASER GALAXY NGC 4258
We determine the mass of the black hole at the center of the spiral galaxy NGC 4258 by constructing axisymmetric dynamical models of the galaxy. These models are constrained by high spatialExpand

TLDR
Measurements of the accelerations of three stars from the central radio source Sagittarius A* increase the inferred minimum mass density in the central region of the Galaxy by an order of magnitude relative to previous results, and localize the dark mass to within 0.05 ± 0.04 arcsec of the nominal position of Sgr A*.
