In order to address the "cosmic downsizing problem," or the underpopulation of highly massive quasars in the current epoch, the Arkansas Galaxy Evolution Survey (AGES) is exploring a correlation, the M-P relation, between the pitch angle of a galaxy's spiral arms and the mass of its central supermassive black hole (SMBH). The goal is to generate a census of SMBH masses using only images, without relying on spectra. This study presents preliminary results testing the M-P relation by comparingdoi:10.1063/1.3518878 fatcat:auxz3paynvbvtfjrzlzmoggcqq
