« Black Holes Unbound »

David Merritt
Rochester Univ. (Rochester, New York, Etats-Unis d'Amérique)

The paradigm that every luminous galaxy must contain a supermassive black hole at its center has been challenged by the discovery that gravitational-wave recoil can deliver kicks as big as 10,000 km/s to coalescing binary black holes.
This talk will discuss some of the consequences of black hole ejection, including hyper-compact stellar systems; oscillating nuclei; off-center tidal disruption flares; and others.
