Study group: stellar-mass black-hole binaries in AGN disks

This is the schedule of our study group on formation and evolution of stellar-mass BH binaries in AGN disks, and consequences for LIGO and Virgo.

Here is an ADS Library with these papers. If you need to refresh the physics of accretion disks, Lodato (2008) wrote a short and sweet review.
