Invited/Solicited talk in mini-symposium Cosmic Explosions...


Prof. Jane Dai (The University of Hong Kong)


Tidal disruption event is a unique probe of quiescent massive black holes. In this talk, I will discuss how we can use tidal disruption events to constrain the demographics of massive black holes including intermediate mass black holes. I will also show our recent theoretical modelling results on the accretion, outflow and emission processes in tidal disruption events, which can be used to explain various observed signatures.
