Origin, growth and feedback of black holes in dwarf galaxies

7th September 2020   -   11th September 2020
San Sebastian, Spain


In this conference we plan to review the latest observational status concerning AGN in dwarfs, as well as to cover the prospects of other methods in identifying them, for example using dynamical measurements. Likewise, we will review and discuss theoretical models for the origin of black hole seeds, and how they might be a different population than that of black holes in normal galaxies, as well as models for the growth and feedback of such black holes onto the surrounding galaxy. Finally, we will discuss the fundamental properties of dwarfs as predicted by hierarchical galaxy formation in the LCDM model, paying attention to the interplay between galaxy and black hole growth modulated by feedback effects.
