Scientific program

We saved most of time for discussions and work on subjects connected with current research projects of the group members:
  • Estimating black-hole spins from spectral continuum and Fe florescence
  • Hydrodynamical modelling of HMXRB winds
  • Star dynamics in galaxy cores
  • Turbulence in accretion flow
  • Polarization of Sgr A* radiation and X-ray polarization in general
  • Weak gravitational lensing
