Invited Presentation

The Assembly of the First Massive Black Holes

Author(s): Kohei Inayoshi (PKU/KIAA)

Presenter: Kohei Inayoshi (Peking University)

The existence of ~10^9 Msun supermassive black holes (SMBHs) within the first billion years of the universe has stimulated numerous ideas for the prompt formation and rapid growth of BHs in the early universe. I will review ways in which the seeds of massive BHs may have first assembled, and how they may have subsequently grown as massive as ~10^9 Msun. I will also highlight recent simulation results for the rapid growth of BH seeds via gas accretion in massive, metal-poor galaxies. Finally, some caveats to understand the early coevolution of SMBHs with their host galaxies will be addressed.
