  • Black hole - galaxy correlations without self-regulation 

    Angles-Alcazar, Daniel; Ozel, Feryal; Dave, Romeel (American Astronomical Society, 2013)
    Recent models of black hole growth in a cosmological context have forwarded a paradigm in which the growth is self-regulated by feedback from the black hole itself. Here we use cosmological zoom simulations of galaxy formation ...
