In science:

Potential problems with single epoch data are described in Gaskell (2009b).
An expanded M_bh-sigma diagram, and a new calibration of active galactic nuclei masses
Gaskell 2011), must be revisited using the curved or broken relations appropriate for each data set.
Breaking the law: the M_{bh}-M_{spheroid} mass relations for core-Sersic and Sersic galaxies
We use the interpolated correlation function (ICF) introduced in Gaskell & Peterson (1987).
Very rapid optical variability of PKS 2155-304
Gaskell (1981) preferred an alternative explanation based on displaced velocities in which the broad and narrow-line regions differ by 1200 km s−1 .
The End of the Lines for OX 169: No Binary Broad-Line Region
While this is a valid proposition as far as it goes, recent references to it have omitted the clause beginning with the word if, asserting, in effect, that line profile variability is caused by reverberation, and that it must therefore be symmetric in a disk model (e.g., Gaskell 1996).
The End of the Lines for OX 169: No Binary Broad-Line Region
This subdivision was maintained until, in the ’80s, it was recognized that a number of peculiar SN I missing in the spectrum near maximum the typical feature at ∼ 6510 ˚A, had a completely different nebular spectrum dominated by forbidden Ca and O emissions instead of Fe lines (Gaskell et al. 1986).
Supernova types and rates
Interestingly, the galactic disks of both Seyferts are inclined (i = 63o for NGC 3227, i = 59o for Akn 564; de Zotti & Gaskell 1985), so that our line of sight intercepts more gas and dust in their disks than for face-on galaxies.
On the Nature of Intrinsic Absorption in Reddened Seyfert 1 Galaxies
We also list the axial ratios (b/a) of the host galaxies from, in order of preference, de Zotti & Gaskell (1985), Kirhakos & Steiner (1990), NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED), or direct measurement from the Palomar Sky Survey (POSS) images, as noted.
On the Nature of Intrinsic Absorption in Reddened Seyfert 1 Galaxies
We prefer the de Zotti & Gaskell (1985) compilation, since it uses measurements from large-scale plates when available; the other measurements rely strictly on POSS images.
On the Nature of Intrinsic Absorption in Reddened Seyfert 1 Galaxies
De Zotti & Gaskell (1985) found that the Balmer decrement Hα/Hβ of the broad lines increases with decreasing axial ratio, and the narrow-line decrement shows a similar, though less significant, behavior.
On the Nature of Intrinsic Absorption in Reddened Seyfert 1 Galaxies
The answer may be that gas originally associated with the host galaxy is evacuated in the vicinity of the nucleus, (i.e., distances < ∼ 100 pc) as suggested by de Zotti & Gaskell (1985).
On the Nature of Intrinsic Absorption in Reddened Seyfert 1 Galaxies
Two of those effects involve changes in the C IV emission line; these are the (Baldwin 1977) Effect (BEff ) and the blueshifting of the peak of the C IV emission line with respect to the quasars’ systemic redshift (Gaskell 1982; Wilkes 1984).
AGN Outflows in Emission and Absorption: The SDSS Perspective
As far as Seyfert nuclei are concerned3 , possible fueling mechanisms may be either tidal triggering by a companion galaxy (Noguchi 1988; see for a review Barnes & Hernquist 1992), or minor merger with a satellite galaxy (Gaskell 1985; Mihos & Hernquist 1994a; Hernquist & Mihos 1995).
Does the Radiative Avalanche Fueling Work in Any Active Galactic Nuclei ?
Baldwin, Wampler & Gaskell (1989, BWG), building on earlier work, addressed the problem of selection effects for radio-loud quasars by obtaining spectra of all ob jects in a well-defined radio sample, so that ob jects with weak lines would not be omitted.
A Review of Line and Continuum Correlations in AGNs
As has been discussed by Young & Branch (1989), Gaskell (1992) and Patat et al. (1994) the available data suggest that it may be appropriate to divide SNe II-L into two luminosity groups; which, again, we refer to as bright and normal.
