Tidal disruption of stars by SMBHs in galactic nuclei

Tidal disruption of stars by SMBHs is a tool to study the property of BHs. We want to know what the disruption rate is, how it is correlated with the surrounding stellar distribution, the motion of the BH. And we tested the classic loss-cone theory using our simulated data.
