Spectral/timing properties of accreting objects: from X-ray binaries to AGN
“Spectral/timing properties of accreting objects: from X-ray binaries to AGN” is a 3-day workshop to be held at the European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC) in April 2013. The aim of the workshop is to review the current understanding of the physics of accretion onto compact objects across the full range of masses, by bringing together young and active experts of the field. In order to encourage discussions and maximize collaborations, the attendance to the workshop will be limited to about 70 people, that will be selected on the basis of the proposed contribution after the registration deadline. There will be no registration fee.
The main scientific topics covered will be:
– Accretion modes at different scales;
– States and state transitions;
– Inflow/outflow connections;
– Accretion/ejection mechanisms;
– Unification schemes.
