Black Holes: Sculptors of Galaxies and Clusters

Julie Hlavacek-Larrondo (Université de Montréal) - October 24, 2016 at 12:10 pm

The last two decades have shown us that supermassive black holes can have a profound impact on galaxies. During this talk, I will review the current status of this field, known as AGN feedback, while focusing on the most massive black holes in the Universe, those that lie at the centres of galaxy clusters. I will review the physics behind these interactions and then focus on the evolution of radio feedback over cosmic time while presenting new results from clusters discovered via the South Pole Telescope.

The seminar will be held in 131A Campbell Hall.
