We discuss how polarized emission can place constraints on the properties of accretion flows and jets in the strong gravity regime for systems like SgrA* and M87 being observed by the Event Horizon Telescope.

Black holes are the engines that power quasars and active galactic nuclei throughout cosmic time. The masses of black holes in nearby galaxies define clear correlations with the properties of their host galaxies. These results suggest that black holes, while a thousand times lighter than the galaxy, grow alongside their hosts during its cosmic evolution. I will discuss the growth of black holes, and the establishment of the connection between galaxies and black holes.

The Event Horizon Telescope is a project to assemble a global Very Long Baseline Interferometric (VLBI) array that operates at mm and submm wavelengths. With stations ranging from Hawaii to the South Pole, the array will have the angular resolution to image the nearest super massive black holes, and the sensitivity to time resolve dynamics at the event horizon. The central goal is to spatially resolve a region of space time where gravity is dominant, and to detect strong field GR signatures.
