Brief BiographyAmr El-Zant is an astrophysicist interested in the physics and dynamics of the formation and evolution of galaxies, their clusters , and the putative dark matter in which they are probably imbued. Much of his work has focused on the non-trivial dynamics arising from the coupling of clumpy or non-axisymmetric components (bars, triaxial halos etc); particularly the effect this produces on the evolution of both the luminous and dark galactic and cluster components; on the formation of central mass concentrations and super massive black holes in galaxies, and on the heating of the inter-galactic gas and prevention of cooling catastrophes in clusters.
