Chris Onken, Valparaiso, ChiliJun 14, 2006 - The Widespread Influence of Supermassive Black Holes - Dr. Chris Onken, HIA

Outline: A number of recent discoveries indicate that the evolution of a galaxy is strongly influenced by the supermassive black hole at its center. I will describe the evidence for this co-evolution of black holes and galaxies, and will discuss the current attempts to understand how this relationship has played out over the history of the universe and some of the key observational tests for these models.
