Young stars near SgrA* - Dr Yuri Levin Colloquium

The radio source SgrA* at the center of our Galaxy
harbors a supermassive black hole of about 4 million
solar masses. A few tens of young massive stars reside
in the immediate vicinity (and hence the strong tide)
of SgrA*. Their current location and kinematics
point to a highly unusual birth and life history.
In my talk, I will review the data and present
some theoretical ideas of how these young stars might have formed
so close to the supermassive black hole.
