    • A NORMAL SUPERMASSIVE BLACK HOLE in NGC 1277 

      Graham, Alister W.; Durré, Mark; Savorgnan, Giulia A D; Medling, Anne M.; Batcheldor, Dan; Scott, Nicholas; Watson, Beverly; Marconi, Alessandro (2016-03-01)
      The identification of galaxies with “overly massive” black holes requires two measurements: a black hole mass (Mbh) and a host spheroid mass (Msph,*). Here we provide our measurements for NGC 1277. Our structural ...

      The identification of galaxies with “overly massive” black holes requires two measurements: a black hole mass (Mbh) and a host spheroid mass (Msph,*). Here we provideOur new multi-Gaussian expansion (MGE) models and Jeans ...
    • Recoiling supermassive black holes: A search in the nearby universe 

      Batcheldor, Daniel P.; Lena, Davide; Robinson, Andrew Edward; Marconi, Alessandro; Axon, David J.; Capetti, Alessandro; Merritt, David (2014-11-23)
      The coalescence of a binary black hole can be accompanied by a large gravitational recoil due to anisotropic emission of gravitational waves. A recoiling supermassive black hole (SBH) can subsequently undergo long-lived ...
