Simulations of Tidal Disruption Events Observations with the LSST
Katja Bricman, 2017, master's thesis

Abstract: The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will produce a multi-colour survey of 25000 square deg of the Southern sky during its 10 years of operations. It will observe over 20 billion galaxies and a similar number of stars, map the Solar System and the Milky Way, and probe dark matter and dark energy. In addition, it will discover thousands of transients every night, including new classes of objects, which have not yet been observed. Due to its large coverage of the sky it will be a perfect tool for the search of rare Tidal Disruption Events (TDEs), which occur when a star passes close by a supermassive black hole and gets disrupted by its tidal force. Afterwards the stellar debris fall back to the black hole, initially at a rate exceeding the Eddington rate, producing an outflow, which releases a flare of energy. When the fallback rate subsides below the Eddington rate, the gas accretes onto the black hole via accretion disk. The LSST simulation framework enables us to simulate observations of different types of objects with the LSST. In this work, we include TDEs in the LSST simulation framework, estimate the number of detected TDEs, and simulate their light curves using a theoretical model, which predicts a t^(-2.6) light curve decline with time in the outflow phase and a t^{-0.4} decline in the disk phase. We also take a closer look at the distribution of the detected TDEs over cosmological redshift and black hole mass.
