Astrophysical Evidence for the Black Hole Event Horizon

Astronomers have discovered many candidate black holes in X-ray
binaries and in the nuclei of galaxies.  While the evidence that these
objects are black holes is strong, there is no proof yet that the
objects actually possess event horizons.  The talk will describe some
of our recent efforts to find such proof.

The seminar will be held in the Gilman room in Agassiz house
of Radcliff Institute at 2:30pm.
