Summary:
Black holes lie at the heart of some of the most fascinating astrophysical phenomena. IAU symposium 324 marked the 100th anniversary of Schwarzchild's solution of Einstein's field equations predicting the existence of black holes. Our understanding of black holes has come an impressively long way since then, with the last major discovery being coalescing black holes producing gravitational waves, also predicted in  Read more...

Our understanding of black holes has come an impressively long way since then, with the last major discovery being coalescing black holes producing gravitational waves, also predicted in 1916. In this volume, observational and theoretical experts discuss the current state-of-the-art in the astrophysics of black hole systems and their exploitation in testing fundamental theories of physics. Topics span a wide range and include: a historical review, the similarity and diversty of black hole systems, gamma ray bursts, tidal disruption events, active galactic nuclei, black hole systems as multi-messeger sources, and the opening of new observational horizons.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4482190546#Person\/gomboc_andreja<\/a>> ; # Andreja Gomboc<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/4482190546<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Conference papers and proceedings<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Conference publication<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4482190546#Series\/iau_symposium_proceedings_series<\/a>> ; # IAU symposium proceedings series<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4482190546#Series\/proceedings_of_the_international_astronomical_union<\/a>> ; # Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/issn\/1743-9213<\/a>> ; # IAU symposium and colloquium proceedings series.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/1005081772<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"New frontiers in black hole astrophysics : proceedings of the 324th symposium of the International Astronomical Union held in Ljubljana, Slovenia September 12-16, 2016<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1000297592<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.cambridge.org\/core\/journals\/proceedings-of-the-international-astronomical-union\/issue\/2B273A93779306EB131867F3E611468A<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781107169944<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1000297592<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
