“Growth and evolution of the Milky Way’s nuclear star cluster and its central black hole“, Alajar, Spain
The goal of the workshop is to review the current theoretical and observational state-of-the-art related to stellar kinematic and dynamics in the nuclear star cluster around the massive black hole at the centre of our Galaxy and to discuss in detail the open key questions and future observational possibilities. The workshop will serve to build new collaborative relationships and strengthening existing ones.
We will focus on topics such as the growth history of the nuclear cluster and black hole, the apparently missing cusp of old stars around the central black hole, upcoming tests of general relativity, star formation in the nuclear cluster, and the Galactic centre as a source of gravitational radiation.
