Title : Supermassive star formation in the early universe
Abstract: Discovery of SMBHs in the universe with age less than 1Gyrs renewed our interest in supermassive stars (>10^5Msun) as possible progenitors of the seed BHs. Among possible formation scenarios, so-called the direct collapse scenario attracts most attention these days. Here I discuss necessary conditions for their formation, i.e., protostellar collapse without fragmentation, accretion growth to the supermassive range, and the final collapse to BHs.
