From seed to supermassive: simulating the origin, evolution and impact of massive black holes

Abstract:

First observed as early as redshift z = 7 and now thought to be found at the centre of every massive galaxy in the local Universe, the evolution history of supermassive black holes (SMBHs) spans over 13 billion years. In this thesis, the coevolution between SMBHs and their host galaxies is studied using a set of hydrodynamical simulations to isolate different components of the interaction between black holes and cosmic gas. The simulations range from black hole accretion in an idealised co...
