Recently the Event Horizon Telescope has presented a ring-like emission structure of M87 and our galactic center Sgr A* at 1.3mm with unprecedented angular resolutions. These images are consistent with the size and shape of the lensed photon orbit encircling the “shadow” of a supermassive black hole. In this talk, I would like to overview the theoretical interpretation of EHT results of M87, and present the recent progress of theoretical modeling by state-of-the-art numerical simulations of magnetized accretion flows onto a black hole. I also discuss the numerical modeling of relativistic jets and comparison with the observations at mm-wavelength.


報告人簡介:Yosuke Mizuno is T.D. Lee Fellow and Associate Professor at the Tsung-Dao Lee Institute at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He obtained a Ph.D. from Kyoto University in 2004. He was a postdoc at the Department of Astronomy, Kyoto University, Japan (2004-2005), a NASA postdoctoral program fellow at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, US (2005-2008), a research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, US (2008-2011), an associate research scholar at Taiwan Tsing-Hua University, Taiwan, China (2011-2014), and research associate at Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany (2014-2020). He joined the Tsung-Dao Lee Institute in October 2020. He was a Theory & Simulation Working Group coordinator on the Event Horizon Telescope collaboration from 2017 to 2022. He has worked on relativistic astrophysics, plasma astrophysics, and high-energy astrophysics by using numerical simulations.
