These are just rough notes - feel free to correct them, add links, etc. from the Benasque, Pyrenees (mountains on spanish/french border) "Modern Cosmology", 27 July - 14 August 2008 meeting initial participant list. These are not official proceedings. The speakers might even disagree that they said anything even vaguely related to what are in these online notes! Don't say you weren't warned.

See ArXiv:0710.4488

Some random comments:
  • So│tan argument (1982?)
  • the X-ray background is now accepted as being mostly from AGNs
  • the Silk & Rees 1998 feedback mechanism has problems, so there's also a feeding mechanism
  • problems remain with matching all the observational parameters to the models
  • there's a new model with Kollmeier being prepared
  • BH evolution is closely tied with stellar spheroid evolution
