Black Hole Feedback and Cosmic Ray Astrophysics

Leader: Fulai Guo

The major goal of our group is to study the physical mechanism of black hole feedback and its roles in the evolution of galaxies, galaxy groups and clusters. Which black hole accretion and feedback modes are important in galaxy evolution? Whether, when, and how do massive black holes and galaxies co-evolve? How do black holes transfer energy to the interstellar and intracluster media? One important feature of our group is to explore the dynamical roles and observational signatures of cosmic rays in black hole feedback and galactic winds. Our main methodology is to use hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic simulations, with applications to new multi-wavelength observational data in radio, infrared, optical, X-ray, gamma-ray, etc.
