If a black hole formed in a core-collapse supernova is accreting material from the base of the envelope, the accretion luminosity could be observable in the supernova light curve. We present results of a fully relativistic numerical investigation of the fallback of matter onto a black hole in a supernova and examine conditions which would be favorable for detection of the black hole. In general, heating by radioactive decays is likely to prevent practical detection of the black hole, but we show that low energy explosions of more massive stars may provide an important exception. We emphasize the particular case of SN1997D in NGC1536, for which we predict that the presence of a black hole could be inferred observationally within the next year. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Matter makes a transition from non-relativistic to relativistic regime, as it falls onto a black hole. We employ a relativistic equation of state, abbreviated as RC, to study multi-species fluid flow around black holes. We show that pair-plasma fluid around a black hole is thermally not...

    In this review we shall comment on a few recent findings which strengthen the view that the black hole accretion has substantial amount of sub-Keplerian component. The manifestation of this component is many fold. We discuss some of them. A general outline of the complex structure that emerges...
