About the Authors
  • IAU Symposium 303 highlights the latest Galactic Center research by scientists from around the world. Topics vary from theory through observations, from stars and stellar orbits through nearby black holes and explosive events, to the building blocks and transport of energy in galaxies similar to our own Milky Way. Highlights presented include: high-resolution, multi-wavelength large-scale surveys of molecular gas in the central molecular and dust zones of our Galaxy; studies of stellar populations and stellar orbits around the supermassive black hole Sgr A*; presentations of theoretical models to explain the dusty S-cluster object (DSO) G2, as well as the general accretion and jet formation in the vicinity of Sgr A*; and discussions of large-scale gamma-ray emission in the context of energetic activity and magnetic fields in the Galactic Center. The volume concludes by looking ahead to future observing opportunities across the electromagnetic spectrum at very high resolution.

    • Covers the latest in global research into the Galactic Center, including first results from new instruments
    • Includes investigations of G2/DSO, currently passing the nuclear black hole
    • Addresses theories and observations relating to dynamics and energy transport from the outer regions to the Galactic Center
