NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2006MNRAS.366.1050C NGC 4435: a bulge-dominated galaxy with an unforeseen low-mass central black hole Coccato, L.; Sarzi, M.; Pizzella, A.; Corsini, E. M.; Bonta, E. Dalla; Bertola, F. Abstract. We present the ionized gas kinematics of the SB0 galaxy NGC 4435 from spectra obtained with the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph. This galaxy has been selected on the basis of its ground-based spectroscopy, for displaying a position-velocity diagram consistent with the presence of a circumnuclear Keplerian disc rotating around a supermassive black hole (SMBH). We obtained the H{alpha} and [NII]{lambda}6583 kinematics in the galaxy nucleus along the major axis and two parallel offset positions. We built a dynamical model of the gaseous disc taking into account the whole bi-dimensional velocity field and the instrumental setup. For the mass of the central SMBH, we found an upper limit of 7.5 x 10^6^M_sun_ at the 3{sigma} level. This indicates that the mass of the SMBH of NGC 4435 is lower than the one expected from the M_blackhole_-{sigma}_c_ (5 x 10^7^M_sun_) and near-infrared M_blackhole_-L_bulge_ (4 x 10^7^M_sun_) relationships. Key words: black hole physics, galaxies: individual: NGC 4435, galaxies: kinematics and dynamics
