Black hole mass and accretion rate of active galactic nuclei with double-peaked broad emission lines. Wu X.-B., Liu F.K. <Astrophys. J., 614, 91-100 (2004)> =2004ApJ...614...91W
ADC_Keywords: Accretion ; Active gal. nuclei ; QSOs Keywords: accretion, accretion disks - black hole physics - galaxies: active - galaxies: nuclei - quasars: emission lines - quasars: general Abstract: Using an empirical relation between the broad-line region size and optical continuum luminosity, we estimated the black hole mass and accretion rate for 135 active galactic nuclei (AGNs) with double-peaked broad emission lines in two samples, one from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS, Cat. J/AJ/126/2579) and the other from a survey of radio-loud broad emission line AGNs (Eracleous & Halpern, 2003, Cat. J/ApJ/599/886). File Summary:

Note (1): Starlight fraction values were taken from Eracleous & Halpern (1994ApJS...90....1E, 2003 Cat. J/ApJ/599/886), except that a value of 0.9 instead of 1 was adopted for MS 0450.3-1817 and Arp 102B.
