Physics PAN Seminar by Professor Anne Lohfink (Montana State University)

Title: Traffic patterns around accreting black holes

Abstract: Black hole accretion is one of the most energetic processes in the Universe, making the surrounding of black holes a place of many extremes and an interesting study target. Despite a wealth of studies, many open questions remain. In my talk, I will discuss new results regarding two of those remaining questions. Initially, I will explore the question whether the torus structure observed near accreting supermassive black holes is the same for sources with strong obscuration (Seyfert 2s) and sources with little obscuration (Seyfert 1s). To shed light on this matter, I will present results from an X-ray and IR study of the torus in a sample of polar-scattered Seyferts. The second half of my talk will then focus on the connection of the accretion process to the compact jet, as it is seen in the hard state of black hole X-ray binaries but also in some AGN.
