High-redshift luminous quasars powered by accreting supermassive black holes (SMBHs) with mass ≳109 M ⊙ constrain their formation pathways. We investigate the formation of heavy seeds of SMBHs through gas collapse in the quasar host progenitors, using merger trees to trace the halo growth in highly biased, overdense regions of the universe. The progenitor halos are likely irradiated by intense H2-photodissociating radiation from nearby star-forming galaxies and heat the interior gas by… 
Long-term Evolution of Supercritical Black Hole Accretion with Outflows: A Subgrid Feedback Model for Cosmological Simulations
We study the long-term evolution of the global structure of axisymmetric accretion flows onto a black hole (BH) at rates substantially higher than the Eddington value ( ṀEdd ), performing 2D

Forming massive seed black holes in high-redshift quasar host progenitors
The presence of massive black holes (BHs) with masses of the order of $10^9\, {\rm M_\odot }$, powering bright quasars when the Universe was less than 1 Gyr old, poses strong constraints on their
THE ASSEMBLY OF SUPERMASSIVE BLACK HOLES AT HIGH REDSHIFTS
The supermassive black holes (SMBHs) massive enough (≳ few ×109 M☉) to power the bright redshift z ≈ 6 quasars observed in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) are thought to have assembled by mergers
COLD FLOWS AND THE FIRST QUASARS
Observations of the most distant bright quasars imply that billion solar mass supermassive black holes (SMBHs) have to be assembled within the first 800 million years. Under our standard galaxy
Can Supermassive Black Holes Form in Metal-enriched High-Redshift Protogalaxies?
Primordial gas in protogalactic DM halos with virial temperatures Tvir≳ 104 K begins to cool and condense via atomic hydrogen. Provided that this gas is irradiated by a strong UV flux and remains
Supermassive black hole formation by cold accretion shocks in the first galaxies
We propose a new scenario for supermassive star (SMS: >rsim 105 M⊙) formation in shocked regions of colliding cold accretion flows near the centres of the first galaxies. Recent numerical simulations
The formation of massive black holes in z ∼ 30 dark matter haloes with large baryonic streaming velocities
The origins of the � 10 9 M J quasar supermassive black holes (BHs) at redshifts z > 6 remain a theoretical puzzle. One possibility is that they grew from � 10 5 M J BHs formed in the ‘direct
Formation of the first star clusters and massive star binaries by fragmentation of filamentary primordial gas clouds
We perform a set of cosmological simulations of early structure formation incorporating baryonic streaming motions. We present a case where a significantly elongated gas cloud with ∼104 solar mass
Formation of massive black holes in rapidly growing pre-galactic gas clouds
TLDR
A radiation hydrodynamics simulation of early galaxy formation suggests that the dynamics of structure formation, rather than the Lyman–Werner flux, drives the formation of massive black holes in the early Universe.
Early growth of typical high-redshift black holes seeded by direct collapse
Understanding the growth of high redshift massive black holes (MBHs) is a problem of great astrophysical interest. The most luminous quasars at $z>6$ are frequently observed but they represent only
COSMOLOGICAL SIMULATIONS OF EARLY BLACK HOLE FORMATION: HALO MERGERS, TIDAL DISRUPTION, AND THE CONDITIONS FOR DIRECT COLLAPSE
Gravitational collapse of a massive primordial gas cloud is thought to be a promising path for the formation of supermassive black holes in the early universe. We study conditions for the so-called
