The black hole mass of low redshift radiogalaxies

  title={The black hole mass of low redshift radiogalaxies},
  author={Daniela Bettoni and Renato Falomo and Giovanni Fasano and Federica Govoni},
We make use of two empirical relations between the black hole mass and the global properties (bulge luminosity and stellar velocity dispersion) of nearby elliptical galaxies, to infer the mass of the central black hole (MBH) in low redshift radiogalaxies. Using the most recent determinations of black hole masses for inactive early type galaxies we show that the bulge luminosity and the central velocity dispersion are almost equally correlated (similar scatter) with the central black-hole mass… CONTINUE READING
