## Better Constraints for the MBH-σ Relation in the Non-Local Universe & Correlations of Ionized Outflows with AGN and Host Galaxy Properties

• Author(s): Sexton, Remington Oliver;
We use BADASS to perform correlation analysis of 63 SDSS Seyfert 1 galaxies with evidence of strong non-gravitational outflow kinematics in the [OIII]λ5007 emission line. We confirm findings from previous studies that show the core of the [OIII] profile is a suitable surrogate for $\sigma_*$, however there is evidence that the core experiences broadening that scales with outflow velocity. We find sufficient evidence that σ, [OIII] core dispersion, and the non-gravitational outflow dispersion of the [OIII] profile form a plane whose fit results in a scatter of ~0.1 dex. Finally, we discuss the implications, caveats, and recommendations when using the [OIII] dispersion as a surrogate for sigma* for the MBH-σ relation.
