Title: Searching for the kinematical signature of a black hole in M87
Author: Merritt, David; Peng Oh, Siang
Abstract: Many theories for the formation of massive black holes in galactic nuclei predict that the stellar motions should be anisotropic within the radius of influence of the black hole. We report tentative evidence for such an effect in M87.
