X1 – Cross-Division D-J Commission Supermassive Black Holes, Feedback and Galaxy Evolution

Description

The IAU Commission X1is a Cross-Division D-J that has as main goal to promote the development of research on Supermassive Black Holes, AGN (Active Galactic Nuclei) and star formation feedback and their role in galaxy evolution.

With this commission we aim at fostering interaction between theorists and observers from across the electromagnetic spectrum in order to investigate the interplay among the growth of SMBHs and galaxies, including the effects of the environment.

We intend to bridge the studies on feedback from the "galaxy evolution community", that focus mostly in the role of star formation, and the `"AGN community", which concentrate on feedback from the environs of the nuclear SMBH, in order to advance our understanding of galaxy evolution.
