Abstract:The upcoming Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will observe ~18000 square degrees of the Southern sky and is expected to discover thousands of transients every night due to its large coverage of the sky and its observing strategy. Being an exceptional transient hunter, we expect the LSST to increase the current observed sample of Tidal Disruption Events (TDEs) by a factor of ~1000 in 10 years of survey duration. TDEs are one of the only probes of dormant supermassive black holes in the Universe, and if their observed optical light curves are sampled frequently enough, TDEs can serve as indicators of SMBH mass. In this talk I will present our simulations of TDE observations with LSST, the resulting SMBH mass distributions of observed TDEs, and the efficiency of different proposed observing strategies of LSST in finding these rare transients.
