« Active galactic nuclei, galaxy morphologies, and black hole growth »

Numerical simulations are a powerful tool to understand the formation and evolution of galaxies within their cosmological context. In order to get realistic galaxy properties feedback processes are required, amongst which the feedback from Black Holes (BHs), the so-called Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN), seems to have a key role for shaping massive galaxies.
With the help of hydrodynamical cosmological simulations (amongst which the state-of-the-art Horizon-AGN simulation), I will show how AGN help to transform galaxy morphologies, what are the various modes of AGN feedback, and how fast their BHs can grow at high redshift.
