"Simulations of Black Hole Accretion and Outflows"
Speaker: Alexander Tchekhovskoy (Northwestern University)
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.
