COST Summer School "Black Holes At All Scales", 16-18 September 2013, Ioannina, Greece



Summer School "Black Holes At All Scales"

COST action "Black Holes in a Violent Universe" (MP-0905), Ioannina, Greece, September 16 - 18, 2013


The Summer School "Black Holes at all scales" aims at postgraduate students and young postdoctoral fellows. The program includes reviews on various aspects of Black Hole-related science, such as: demographics and formation theories of galactic black hole binaries in our and nearby galaxies, our "own" supermassive black hole in the Galactic center, formation and cosmic evolution of supermassive black holes, phenomenology of active galactic nuclei and a review of their "unification" theories, theory of jet formation and energy extraction in black hole powered systems, as well as the scaling of accretion and jet physics from mini-quasars to quasars.
