A novel approach to estimate their mass may help reveal the relationship between supermassive black holes and the galaxies they inhabit.
Today’s post presents SIMBA, a cosmological simulation that focuses on understanding the growth and evolution of black holes and their host galaxy.
The discovery of medium-sized black holes allow us to trace the history of the giant black holes in the center of galaxies.
Could intermediate-mass black hole activity resolve the long-standing problems with dwarf galaxies in cosmological simulations?
This year, the Chandra X-ray Observatory is celebrating its 20-year legacy. Dr. Ryan Hickox of Dartmouth College will explain how the resulting discoveries have shaped our view of the high-energy universe in his plenary talk at #AAS233.
Do we really understand how black holes grow? Using new methods to run high resolution simulations, the authors of this paper investigate the evolution of gas near a supermassive black hole – and their results have serious implications for the models commonly used in cosmological simulations.
