Recent developments in very long baseline interferometry (VLBI) have made it possible for the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) to resolve the innermost accretion flows of the largest supermassive black holes on the sky. The sparse nature of the EHT’s (u, v)-coverage presents a challenge when attempting to resolve highly time-variable sources. We demonstrate that the changing (u, v)-coverage of the EHT can contain regions of time over the course of a single observation that facilitate dynamical…

Hunting for extra dimensions in the shadow of Sagittarius A*

Recently, Vagnozzi and Visinelli’s work [Phys. Rev. D 100 , 024020 (2020)] reveals that M87*’s shadow establishes an upper limit of l . 170 AU, where l is the AdS 5 curvature radius and 1 AU is one
