On the Missing Energy Puzzle of Tidal Disruption Events

19 Sep 2018 Lu Wenbin Caltech Kumar Pawan UT Austin

For the majority of the tidal disruption event (TDE) candidates, the observed energy in the optical/near-UV bands is of order 10^{51} erg. We show that this observed energy is smaller than the minimum bolometric energy for the radiative inefficient accretion flow model by a factor of 10-100... (read more)
