We kindly invite you to the Tor Vergata Astrophysics Seminar on Thursday July 6th at 11:00 CEST.

TITLE: Tidal Disruption Events As Transient Probes of Massive Black Holes

SPEAKER: Prof. Jane Lixin Dai (The University of Hong Kong)

ABSTRACT: Tidal disruption events (TDEs), in which stars are torn apart by the tidal force from massive black holes, provide good opportunities for probing massive black hole demographics. Furthermore, TDEs are ideal laboratories for studying black hole accretion and jet physics. In this talk, I will first give an introduction to the TDE physics, followed by a summary of current observations. Then I will focus on our latest work on understanding the diversity, evolution and demographics of TDEs.
