Tuesday Lunch Seminar: Yiming Zhong (UChicago) and Mike Zevin (UChicago)

12:00–1:00 pm Zoom

Yiming Zhong will tell us how to seed the first supermassive black holes from self-interacting dark matter.

Mike Zevin will discuss our current understanding of the various evolutionary pathways for forming binary black holes, and how gravitational-wave observations have begun to constrain the relative efficiencies of these channels as well uncertain physical processes inherent to massive-star evolution.
