Probing black hole-galaxy coevolution and calibrating single-epoch virial black hole mass estimators

Abstract:

Understanding the cosmic growth of supermassive black hole (BH) population and coevolution with their host galaxies is now one of the essential ingredients for a complete picture of galaxy formation and evolution. This talk will show you the results of the related two observational research projects. (1) To directly map the BH-galaxy coevolution, we investigate the cosmic evolution of the BH mass-bulge luminosity scaling relationship using a sample of 52 AGNs at z~0.36 and z~0.57. By employing multi-component spectral and structural decomposition methods to the obtained high-quality Keck spectra and high-resolution HST images, BH masses and bulge luminosities are measured uniformly and consistently. Using Monte Carlo simulations to take into account selection effects, we find the observational evidence that BH growth precedes that of the host galaxies. This indicates that black holes grow first and then the host galaxies follow up in the framework of the BH-galaxy coevolution. (2) To probe the high-redshift BH population and scaling relations, measuring BH masses accurately is the first crucial step. The rest-frame UV CIV broad emission line is usually used for BH mass estimates in high-redshift AGNs (i.e., 2
