COLLOQUIUM: SEEDS OF SUPERMASSIVE BLACK HOLES: MAKING THE BABY, AND FEEDING AND HIDING HIM

Date: 
10/21/2016 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm
Location: 
CP155
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Prof. Isaac Shlosman, University of Kentucky
Type of Event (for grouping events):

Supermassive Black Holes (SMBHs) are ubiquitous in the contemporary universe.
But when and where did they form? Recent discovery of quasars hosting SMBHs
more massive than a billion solar masses at redshifts z > 7, when the universe
was less than 700 Megayear old, provides a substantial challenge to current
paradigm of a hierarchical structure formation, which tells us that massive objects
form late in the history. In my talk, I will discuss the latest progress (in) and our
contribution to understanding of formation of these most enigmatic objects.
