Title: Black Holes of Various Masses: Insights on Evolution

Abstract: X-ray binaries, Ultraluminous X-ray sources, Globular Clusters, the Galactic Center, and Active Galactic Nuclei represent a sequence of black holes of various masses. The best statistics refer to quasars. The correlation between supermassive black holes and global properties of host galaxies are revised. We concentrate on the case of high z quasars, when galaxies and holes are newly formed.
