TAPIR Seminar

Black Holes Near, and Far
Mia Bovill, STScI

Understanding the formation and evolution of massive black holes is critical for understanding the galaxies in which they evolve. The general picture if that 10^6 solar mass black holes are hosted in roughly Milky Way mass galaxies. However, I will show that recently detected dark star clusters around Centaurus A likely host black holes > 10^5 solar masses. I will then discuss prospects for the detection of the seeds of these black holes with JWST.
