Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union Symposia and Colloquia : The Galactic Center (IAU S303): Feeding and Feedback in a Normal Galactic Nucleus Hardback
Edited by Lorant Sjouwerman, Jurgen Ott, Cornelia Lang
IAU Symposium 303 highlights the latest Galactic Center research by scientists from around the world.
Topics vary from theory through observations, from stars and stellar orbits through nearby black holes and explosive events, to the building blocks and transport of energy in galaxies similar to our own Milky Way.
Highlights presented include: high-resolution, multi-wavelength large-scale surveys of molecular gas in the central molecular and dust zones of our Galaxy; studies of stellar populations and stellar orbits around the supermassive black hole Sgr A*; presentations of theoretical models to explain the dusty S-cluster object (DSO) G2, as well as the general accretion and jet formation in the vicinity of Sgr A*; and discussions of large-scale gamma-ray emission in the context of energetic activity and magnetic fields in the Galactic Center.
The volume concludes by looking ahead to future observing opportunities across the electromagnetic spectrum at very high resolution.
