" Constraining the spin of Sgr A* via the motion of the S stars "
(Wakayama National College of Technology)
From astrometric and spectroscopic observations in the galactic center,
we can see stars, which are called the S stars, moving around Sgr A*.
The motion of the S stars tell us the mass of Sgr A* and it is about 4 million times
masses of the sun. While we know the mass of the SgrA*, we do not know well
about its spin. In this talk, we assume that the metric around the Sgr A* is the Kerr
metric and constrain the spin parameter including the over-spinning region by the
motion of the S stars.
Seminars are also held at JAC,
