From the accretion disk to the cluster halo: the multi-scale physics of black hole feedback

Project description

Shedding new light on black hole activities

Supermassive black holes grow by accreting gas and merging with other black holes. When they accrete rapidly, they efficiently turn the gravitational energy of accreted material into radiation, jets and winds. This is the process responsible for powering the active galactic nucleus (AGN). Linking the macro and micro scales of AGN feedback processes is crucial to advance our knowledge of black hole, galaxy, and galaxy cluster evolution. The EU-funded DISKtoHALO project aims to address important questions in astronomy on AGNs and AGN feedback processes at all scales. Results will help scientists better understand the torrent of data from observational campaigns.
