Description

The eROSITA instrument onboard the SRG satellite provides a unique opportunity
for discovering transients in its X-ray All Sky survey data. There are many
classes of transients known to emit in X-rays, ranging from flares from active
stars to fast blazar variability. By necessity, I will highlight a few such
source classes and the open science questions that will benefit tremdously from
the eROSITA All Sky Survey and timely follow-up. In particular, I will focus on
tidal disruption events and the source class of fast X-ray transients.
