Optical as a new window to black hole accretion

A.V. Veledina

Tuorla Observatory, Turku, Finland

Physical processes operating in black hole vicinity used to be studied through the X-ray vision. However, recent discoveries in the optical wavelengths put under question the whole accretion picture proposed earlier. I will describe advances in black hole multiwavelength astronomy and their implications for models of accretion/ejection.
