Abstract : It is now believed that every massive galaxy hosts a supermassive black hole at the center and the masses are strongly correlated with the properties of the host galaxy. Masses of the supermassive black holes can be dynamically measured in the local volume, however, extremely challenging beyond it. In this talk, I shall describe the method of measuring supermassive black holes, current limitations, and the present understanding of how the black hole masses are distributed across redshift. I shall also highlight the supermassive black holes accreting close to the Eddington limit.
