The Romulus Cosmological Simulations: A Physical Approach to the Formation, Dynamics and Accretion Models of SMBHs

27 Jun 2017 Tremmel Michael Karcher Michael Governato Fabio Volonteri Marta Quinn Tom Pontzen Andrew Anderson Lauren Bellovary Jillian

We present a novel implementation of supermassive black hole (SMBH) formation, dynamics, and accretion in the massively parallel tree+SPH code, ChaNGa. This approach improves the modeling of SMBHs in fully cosmological simulations, allowing for a more de- tailed analysis of SMBH-galaxy co-evolution throughout cosmic time... (read more)
