Astronomers will need to look further afield: nuclear star clusters, found towards the centre of some galaxies are dense enough and might provide the type of environment needed to produce these objects.
A supermassive black hole's gravity creates a nuclear star cluster surrounding it, which gravitational physics would expect to be spherically symmetric.
The gravity of a supermassive black hole causes stars in its vicinity to form a nuclear star cluster around it.
Among specific topics are nuclear star clusters and spheroidal and late-type disk galaxies, the elliptical-spheroidal and elliptical-elliptical galaxy dichotomies, implications for galaxy evolution of the properties of local barred disks in the field and dense environments, how disks survive mergers, numerical simulations of hot halo gas in galaxy mergers, submillimeter galaxies, broad adsorption line quasars and galaxy evolution, and the environmental impact of galaxy evolution.
