Location: PSC 1136
Speaker: Dr. Alexander Tchekhovskoy (Northwestern U.)
Title: "Simulations of Black Hole Accretion and Outflows"

Black holes are responsible for a wide variety of astrophysical phenomena. They devour stars, eject relativistic jets, affect star formation and galaxy evolution, and enrich the Universe with heavy elements. I will discuss how global general relativistic magnetized fluid dynamics numerical simulations allow us to use this activity to quantitatively probe strong-field gravity and constrain black hole physics in various astrophysical contexts.
