Recent theoretical, numerical developments supported by observational evidence strongly suggest that many Globular Clusters host a black hole (BH) population in their centers. This is in contrast to previous long-standing belief that a BH subcluster would evaporate after undergoing core collapse and decoupling from the cluster. We propose that one mechanism which may add a stabilizing pressure to a BH population is the inhomogeneous Brownian motion generated by fluctuations of the stellar… Expand
