Title : Testing the Kerr paradigm using X-ray reflection spectroscopy
Abstract: The spacetime metric around astrophysical black holes is
supposed to be well described by the Kerr solution.
However, deviations from the Kerr geometry are expected in a
number of different scenarios beyond Einstein's gravity cou
pled to ordinary matter.
In this talk, I will show that the study of the reflection
spectrum of thin accretion disks is a promising approach
to probe the metric around black holes and test the Kerr par
