Black Holes Play Hide-and-Seek in Low-Luminosity Radio Galaxies

May 24, 2018 — 
Every galaxy is thought to harbor a supermassive black hole in the center, or nucleus, of the galaxy, and in active galaxies this black hole is fed by infalling matter. This “central engine” is typically surrounded by dusty molecular gas in a doughnut configuration, which hides the black hole and the infalling material from our view along certain viewing directions. The picture of a central engine plus obscuring doughnut is thought to apply to all accreting supermassive black holes, explaining the apparent variety of active galaxies from the very brightest quasars to the lower-luminosity radio galaxies under a single “unified scheme.”

Mathlete in the House: NFLer-cum-mathematician John Urschel to deliver public lecture at U of M

April 23, 2018 — 
When Stephen Kirkland, head of the Department of Mathematics, invited John Urschel, former NFL star, PhD student, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, (MIT), to speak at the U of M, the gesture, he confesses, wasn’t solely altruistic. There was a bit of self-interest at play as well.
