Lurking in the Darkness: Intermediate Mass Black Holes in Low-Mass Galaxies

By Daniel Bartels • June 19th, 2015

The Milky Way is surrounded by a swarm of tens of lower mass satellite galaxies, the properties of which challenge the predictions of supercomputer simulations of galaxy formation. In this project we focus on the so-called “Too Big To Fail” (TBTF) problem — the prediction that the most massive dark matter subhaloes, which should hostmore…
