Stellar cusps in gallactic nuclei

We will give a brief introduction into stellar cusps in Galactic nuclei or, more in general, around massive black holes. We will treat topics such as: What is a stellar cusp? How does it form? What does the presence or absence of a stellar cusp tell us about a galactic nucleus? Is there a stellar cusp around the black hole at the center of the Milky Way?
