 Explore how/if the mass function of dark remnants can be constrained from a limited set of observables,​ using mock data from N-body simulations. This could be part of Miklos’ project on Challenge 2. Provided that this works, we can then consider a direct application to real data (e.g. Gaia-ESO survey - some of us are members of the consortium). Explore how/if the mass function of dark remnants can be constrained from a limited set of observables,​ using mock data from N-body simulations.

 Laura is applying her discrete Jeans modelling method to snapshots of N-body models that contain stellar-mass black holes. The idea is check if a concentration of dark remnants near the centre can be mistaken for an intermediate-mass black hole. Laura is applying her discrete Jeans modelling method to snapshots of N-body models that contain stellar-mass black holes.
