  • Direct collapse black hole (DCBH) formation with mass $\gtrsim 10^{5}~M_{\odot}$ is a promising scenario for the origin of high-redshift supermassive black holes. It has usually been supposed that the DCBH can only form in the primordial gas since the metal enrichment enhances the cooling ability and causes the fragmentation into smaller pieces. What actually happens in such an environment, however, has not been explored in detail. Here, we study the impact of the metal enrichment on the clouds… CONTINUE READING
