Recalibration of the M BH-s * Relation for AGN

Batiste, Merida; Bentz, Misty C; Raimundo, Sandra I.; Vestergaard, M; Onken, Christopher


We present a recalibration of the M BH-σ ∗ relation, based on a sample of 16 reverberation-mapped galaxies with newly determined bulge stellar velocity dispersions (σ ∗) from integral-field spectroscopy (IFS), and a sample of 32 quiescent galaxies with publicly available IFS. For both samples, σ ∗ is determined via two different methods that are popular in the literature, and we provide fits for each sample based on both sets of σ ∗. We find the fit to the active galactic nucleus sample is...[Show more]
