Panel Discussion with Suvi Gezari, Brian Metzger and Marta Volonteri

This panel discussion accompanies the conference “Exploring Supermassive Black Holes”. We (Suvi Gezari, Jenny Greene, Brian Metzger, Marta Volonteri) will discuss the critical stages in the life cycle of black holes, from the formation of supermassive black hole seeds to growth via accretion and more extreme tidal disruption events, to the ongoing debate about whether and how often supermassive black holes merge. We will focus on the new opportunities afforded by time domain surveys with electro-magnetic and gravitational wave detectors.
