Effect of mass-loss due to stellar winds on the formation of supermassive black hole seeds in dense nuclear star clusters

Abstract:

The observations of high-redshifts quasars at z ≳ 6 have revealed that supermassive black holes (SMBHs) of mass ∼109M⊙∼109M⊙ were already in place within the first ∼Gyr after the big bang. Supermassive stars (SMSs) with masses 103−5M⊙103−5M⊙ are potential seeds for these observed SMBHs. A possible formation channel of these SMSs is the interplay of gas accretion and runaway stellar collisions inside dense nuclear star clusters (NSCs). However, mass-loss due to stellar winds could be an import...
