Black hole formation and growth

The advanced Course will review the state of knowledge, open questions and forecasts and will cover the following topics: Foundation of Gravity, early Universe, primordial black-holes, black holes at all scales, black-hole merging and gravitational waves, black-hole accretion and feedback, black hole growth on cosmological time scales.

The lectures will be held in the morning and in the late afternoon leaving free time for informal discussions, studies, and outdoor activities (skiing) in the afternoons. The course is intended mainly for post graduate, PhD students, astronomers and physicists who wish to broaden their knowledge. The lecture notes will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Saas-Fee lecture series.
