Stellar Remnants in Galactic Nuclei: Mass Segregation

  title={Stellar Remnants in Galactic Nuclei: Mass Segregation},
  author={Vassiliki Kalogera},
The study of how stars distribute themselves around a massiv e black hole (MBH) in the center of a galaxy is an important prerequisite for the understanding of many gal actic-center processes. These include the observed overabundance of point X-ray sources at the Galactic center , th prediction of rates and characteristics of tidal disruptions of extended stars by the MBH and of inspira ls of compact stars into the MBH, the latter being events of high importance for the future space borne… CONTINUE READING
