" Black hole-galaxy scaling relations and gas outflows "

Jong-Hak Woo

(Seoul National University/Carnegie Observatories)

The correlations between galaxy properties and supermassive black hole mass motivated a numerous observational and theoretical studies. Nevertheless, our understanding of the origin of this connection is premature. In this talk, I will review the current status and limitation of the BH-galaxy scaling relations of active and quiescent galaxies at z~0, and cosmic evolution of the scaling relation based on our long-term study with HST imaging and Keck spectroscopy. In the second part of the talk, I will discuss the results from a census of ionized gas outflows, using a 22,000 local AGNs, and present the highlight of the follow-up integral field spectroscopy of the AGNs with strong outflows. Then, I will briefly discuss the connection between star formation and AGN activity based on AKARI and Herschel data, to constrain the interaction between BHs and star formation, using a large sample of local optical AGNs, and a small sample of X-ray AGNs at moderate redshift.

Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
