Dual black holes in merger remnants . I : linking accretion to dynamics

Abstract

We study the orbital evolution and accretion history of massive black hole (MBH) pairs in rotationally supported circumnuclear discs up to the point where MBHs form binary systems. Our simulations have unprecedented resolution in mass and space which, for the first time, makes it feasible to follow the orbital decay of a MBH either counter– or co–rotating… (More)
