PhD Award Thesis: Accretion onto black holes across the mass scale

Nov 28, 2022, 4:05 PM


Riccardo Arcodia (MPE)


Riccardo's thesis focused on accretion of matter onto black holes of different masses. It studied one of the most known, yet still unexplained, observational relations in active super-massive black holes and compared it with observations of their stellar-mass relative. It made use of the newly-launched eROSITA X-ray telescope to study a new class of transient accretion events around black holes of intermediate masses.
