Tidal Disruption Events in the eROSITA Era

Due to eROSITA’s cadence and its 30-fold increased sensitivity in the soft X-ray band relative to ROSAT, eROSITA promises to detect 1000s of tidal disruption event (TDE) candidates during its all sky survey phase. I will present our machine-learning assisted approach for identifying TDE candidates amongst the millions of X-ray sources in eROSITA's source catalogues, and selected early results from the first months of the all-sky survey.
