IPMU Colloquium

Speaker: John Silverman (Kavli IPMU)
Title: Co-evolution of supermassive black holes and galaxies from HSC to JWST
Date (JST): Wed, Sep 28, 2022, 10:30 - 12:00
Place: Hybrid
Abstract: Supermassive black holes are an integral component of most simulations of galaxy formation. Well-established observed relations in the local universe between black holes and their host galaxies provide important constraints on the models. Even so, the physical connection between the two remains elusive. I will review observational results, using Hubble and Subaru’s Hyper Suprime-Cam, which establish the evolution in these relations with cosmic time and present new insights on the coupling between supermassive black holes and massive galaxies. Finally, JWST is poised to extend these studies out to the first billion year of our Universe and even earlier while Subaru’s Prime-Focus Spectrograph will provide an order-of-magnitude increase in statistical significance at the peak of cosmic assembly.
Remarks: The colloquium will be conducted at Lecture Hall (Max Capacity 30) & ZOOM.
