Thesis
Full-text available
The main objective of the original work presented in this Thesis is to develop a theoretical framework to understand the growth, cosmological evolution and observational features of the first black holes, formed when the Universe was younger than \(\sim 1 \, \mathrm{Gyr}\). In the first part a growth model is assembled, based on the developed radia...

... Since accretion disks are not spherical and often have additional stresses that can counteract the radiation pressure along with gravity, they may be brighter than this limit and radiate at super-Eddington luminosity (e.g. Pacucci, Volonteri & Ferrara, 2015;Pacucci, 2016;Sakurai, Inayoshi & Haiman, 2016). Many papers, reviews, and books have been published about the accretion processes in cosmic sources (e.g. ...
