Testing single-epoch BH mass estimators for AGNs

I. Reverberation Mapping (RM)

II. Single-Epoch (SE) Methods

I. With narrow -line subtraction

II. With iron-template subtraction

C IV more test

III. With narrow -line and iron-template subtractions

C IV more test

Correlation: H

measureing ranges: H

measureing ranges: Mg II

measureing ranges: C IV

- The virial assumption is found valid for H
- MgII and CIV do not show a virial behavior.
- Separation cuts do not change much.
- MgII not showing virial behavior:
- A luminosity effect ==> rule out
- The BLRs of MgII and CIV may be different from that of H
- For C IV, has better virial-like behavior with iron-template subtraction
- varies a lot depending on measuring ranges.
