Nuclear star clusters (NSCs) are massive star clusters found ubiquitously in the centres of galaxies, from the dwarf regime to massive ellipticals and spirals. The fraction of nucleated galaxies is as high as > 90% at M gal ∼ 10 9 M (cid:12) . However, how NSC formation mechanisms work in di ff erent regimes and what determines galaxy nucleation is still unclear. The dissipationless accretion of infalling globular clusters (GCs) and the in situ formation of stars directly at the galactic centre…

A Deep View into the Nucleus of the Sagittarius Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy with MUSE. III. Discrete Multicomponent Population-dynamical Models Based on the Jeans Equations

We present comprehensive multicomponent dynamical models of M54 (NGC 6715), the nuclear star cluster of the Sagittarius (Sgr) dwarf galaxy, which is undergoing a tidal disruption in the Milky Way

Mergers of Supermassive and Intermediate-mass Black Holes in Galactic Nuclei from Disruptions of Star Clusters

Gravitational waves (GWs) offer an unprecedented opportunity to survey the sky and detect mergers of compact objects. While intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs) have not been detected beyond any
