The massive stars in the Galactic center inner arcsecond share analogous properties with the so-called Hot Jupiters. Most of these young stars have highly eccentric orbits and were probably not formed in situ. It has been proposed that these stars acquired their current orbits from the tidal disruption of compact massive binaries scattered toward the proximity of the central supermassive black hole. Assuming a binary star formed in a thin gaseous disk beyond 0.1 pc from the central object, we… 
The Growth of Stellar Mass Black Hole Binaries Trapped in the Accretion Disks of Active Galactic Nuclei
Among the four black hole (BH) binary merger events detected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), six progenitor BHs have masses greater than 20 M ⊙. The existence of
Enhanced Accretion Rates of Stars on Supermassive Black Holes by Star-Disk Interactions in Galactic Nuclei
We investigate the dynamical interaction of a central star cluster surrounding a supermassive black hole (SMBH) and a central accretion disk (AD). The dissipative force acting on stars in the disk
Orbital Migration of Interacting Stellar Mass Black Holes in Disks around Supermassive Black Holes
The merger rate of stellar-mass black hole binaries (sBHBs) inferred by the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) suggests the need for an efficient source of sBHB
THE GALACTIC CENTER S-STARS AND THE HYPERVELOCITY STARS IN THE GALACTIC HALO: TWO FACES OF THE TIDAL BREAKUP OF STELLAR BINARIES BY THE CENTRAL MASSIVE BLACK HOLE?
In this paper, we investigate the link between the hypervelocity stars (HVSs) discovered in the Galactic halo and the S-stars moving in the Galactic center (GC), under the hypothesis that they are
The last migration trap of compact objects in AGN accretion disc
Many black holes (BHs) detected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) and the Virgo detectors are multiple times more massive than those in X-ray binaries. One possibility
A RAPIDLY EVOLVING REGION IN THE GALACTIC CENTER: WHY S-STARS THERMALIZE AND MORE MASSIVE STARS ARE MISSING
The existence of “S-stars” within a distance of 1 ′′ from SgrA ∗ contradicts our understanding of star formation, due to the forbiddingly violent environment. A suggested possibility is that they
Star–disc interaction in galactic nuclei: orbits and rates of accreted stars
We examine the effect of an accretion disc on the orbits of stars in the central star cluster surrounding a central massive black hole by performing a suite of 39 high-accuracy direct N-body
CONSTRAINING THE DARK CUSP IN THE GALACTIC CENTER BY LONG-PERIOD BINARIES
Massive black holes (MBHs) in galactic nuclei are believed to be surrounded by a high-density stellar cluster, whose mass is mostly in hard-to-detect faint stars and compact remnants. Such dark cusps
Star-disc interaction in galactic nuclei: formation of a central stellar disc
We perform high resolution direct $N$-body simulations to study the effect of an accretion disc on stellar dynamics in an active galactic nucleus (AGN). We show that the interaction of the nuclear
Accelerated orbital decay of supermassive black hole binaries in merging nuclear star clusters
The coalescence of supermassive black holes (SMBHs) should generate the strongest sources of gravitational waves (GWs) in the Universe. However, the dynamics of their coalescence is the subject of

Star Formation Around Supermassive Black Holes
TLDR
Numerical simulations of the infall of a giant molecular cloud that interacts with the black hole show that the transfer of energy during closest approach allows part of the cloud to become bound to theblack hole, forming an eccentric disk that quickly fragments to form stars.
Stellar Disk in the Galactic Center: A Remnant of a Dense Accretion Disk?
Observations of the Galactic center revealed a population of young massive stars within 0.4 pc from Sgr A*—the presumed location of a supermassive black hole. The origin of these stars is a puzzle as
Starbursts near supermassive black holes: young stars in the Galactic Centre, and gravitational waves in LISA band
We propose a scenario in which massive stars form in a self-gravitating gaseous disc around a supermassive black hole (SMBH). We analyse the dynamics of a disc forming around an SMBH, in which the
Dynamical evolution of the young stars in the Galactic center
Recent observations of the Galactic center revealed a nuclear disk of young OB stars near the massive black hole (MBH), in addition to many similar outlying stars with higher eccentricities and/or
Star-disk interaction in quasars and AGNs
Recent observational evidence suggests that the overall metallicity in quasars within a wide range of redshifts may be approximately redshift-independent and comparable to or larger than solar. We
On the Origin of the Kinematic Distribution of the Subparsec Young Stars in the Galactic Center
Within a half-parsec from the Galactic center (GC), there is a population of coeval young stars that appear to reside in a coherent disk around a massive black hole. Surrounding this dynamically cool
Origin of the S Stars in the Galactic Center
Over the last 15 years, around a hundred very young stars have been observed in the central parsec of our Galaxy. While the presence of young stars forming one or two stellar disks at ≈0.1 pc from
Stellar dynamical evidence against a cold disc origin for stars in the Galactic Centre
Observations of massive stars within the central parsec of the Galaxy show that, while most stars orbit within a well-defined disc, a significant fraction have large eccentricities and/or
The two young star disks in the central parsec of the galaxy: properties, dynamics and formation
We report the definite spectroscopic identification of 40 OB supergiants, giants and main sequence stars in the central parsec of the Galaxy. Detection of their absorption lines have become possible
The orbital decay of embedded binary stars
Young binaries within dense molecular clouds are subject to dynamical friction from ambient gas. Consequently, their orbits decay, with both the separation and period decreasing in time. A simple
