The nuclear orbital distribution in galaxies as a fossil record of black hole formation from integral-field spectroscopy

Abstract:

In the past decade, most effort in the study of supermassive black holes (BHs) has been devoted to measuring their masses. This led to the finding of the tight M-BH-sigma relation, which indicates the existence of strong links between the formation of the BHs and of their host spheroids. Many scenarios have been proposed to explain this relation, and all agree on the key role of BHs' growth and feedback in shaping their host galaxies. However, the currently available observational constraints...
