Title:Galaxy Black Hole Co-Evolution

Abstract:What is behind the symbiotic relationship between galaxies and their central black holes? Does the energy liberated by accreting supermassive black holes alter the evolutionary trajectories of their host galaxies?I will discuss recent observational advances in illuminating this relationship and the viability of various ideas for "feedback" in co-evolution scenarios. In particular, I will highlight the emergence of multiple pathways in galaxy evolution accompanied by black hole growth and the possible origin of the galaxy-black hole connection in the very early universe.
