|Title||Probing the Growth of Black Holes in Brightest Group and Cluster Galaxies|
|Author||Dr Akos Bogdan|
|Description||Supermassive black holes (BHs) residing in the brightest group-cluster galaxies (BGGs-BCGs) are over-massive relative to the stellar bulge mass of their host galaxy. In a pilot study, we demonstrated that these BHs do not correlate with the stellar bulge mass of the BGG-BCG, but exhibit a surprisingly tight correlation with the total group-cluster mass. Thus, the evolution of these BHs is predominantly influenced by the large-scale properties of galaxy groups-clusters. This proposal aims to expand the sample with 7 galaxy groups-clusters. Based on the larger sample we will connect the total mass of groups-clusters with the BH mass of BGGs-BCGs.|

|Mission Description||The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
