In this contribution I introduce and discuss the so-called cross sections of tidal disruption and partial mass stripping of stars after a tidal encounter with a rotating supermassive black hole. The presented approach is fully relativistic. Possible applications and generalisations of the discussed results are also shortly reviewed.
