The Physics and Roles of Black Holes and Cosmic Rays in Cosmic Structure Evolution
Cosmology, galaxy formation, and high energy astrophysics are three central areas in contemporary astronomy. In this talk, I will bridge these three areas by discussing the potential roles of supermassive black holes and cosmic rays in cosmic structure evolution, with a focus on some of my works in the past several years. In particular, I will talk about radio-mode AGN feedback in galaxy clusters and the Fermi bubbles in the Milky Way, two observationally-different (but analogous) events both likely related to AGN jets, and potentially producing different effects in two very different environments.
