Title: Dynamics of black hole accretion. Of flux-tubes, plasmoids and transient phenomena

Abstract: Over the last two decades, general relativistic magnetohydrodynamic simulations (GRMHD) have drawn a robust broad-brush picture of black hole accretion and jet formation in low-luminosity sources.  The observations by the Event Horizon Telescope and the GRAVITY interferometer now probe accretion physics with unprecedented detail requiring equally sophisticated...

Title: Superradiant Instabilities for Massive Scalar Fields on Kerr Black Hole Backgrounds

Abstract: Superradiance refers to the possibility of energy extraction from a rotating black. We will discuss how this phenomenon leads to instabilities in the propagation of massive...
