Ratio of the corrected and Gaussian velocity dispersion for the sample of early-type galaxies (n = 1 histogram) taken to the power of 2 (n = 2 histogram) and 4 (n = 4 histogram) to emphasize the importance of the correction when velocity dispersion is used as a proxy for either virial or the black hole mass. The empirical stellar template library was used.
