Outflows perpendicular to the torus and the ILLUSTRIS cosmological simulation

Daniel gave us a nice account of this paper:

An Outflow Perpendicular to the Radio Jet in the Seyfert Nucleus of NGC 5929 [Daniel], http://arxiv.org/pdf/1311.6142v1.pdf

Some concerns about the interpretation of the double-peaked line. Also, such a kind of outflows seems a bit unrealistic. The PDF he prepared is here. DMay 17-10 Clube AGNs

Rodrigo then presented the Nature paper about the ILLUSTRIS cosmological simulation of galaxy formation:

Properties of galaxies reproduced by a hydrodynamic simulation, Nature [the famous Illustris simulation, which includes SMBHs] http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v509/n7499/full/nature13316.html

He went through some of the main results of the simulation, methods, compared to the millennium simulation (Moore’s law) and presented slides with some cool snapshots and movies from the simulation. The slides he presented are here: illustris clube dos AGNs

Other papers we noted:
