Time dependence of advection-dominated accretion flow with a toroidal magnetic field
The present study examines the self-similar evolution of advection-dominated accretion flow (ADAF) in the presence of a toroidal magnetic field. In this research, it was assumed that angular momentum
Numerical simulations of the interaction of accretion disks with young star magnetospheres
Aims. We present the results of the numerical simulations of the interaction between a magnetized star and an imperfectly conducting accretion disk. The star is rotating with constant angular
Thermodynamic model of MHD turbulence and some of its applications to accretion disks
Within the framework of the main problem of cosmogony related to the reconstruction of the evolution of the protoplanetary gas-dust cloud that surrounded the proto-Sun at an early stage of its
Inconsistency in the standard model for stellar thin accretion disks
We analyze the configuration of a thin rotating accretion disk, which is embedded in a magnetic field inducing a backreaction in the gravitating plasma. The aim of this study is to determine the
Models of astrophysical decretion-accretion diffusional disks
The formation of gaseous diffusional accretion-decretion disks is an important stage in the evolution of numerous astronomical objects. Matter is accreted onto the object in the accretion part of
Three-dimensional Magnetohydrodynamic Simulations of Jets from Accretion Disks
We report the results of three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations of a jet formation by the interaction between an accretion disk and a large-scale magnetic field. The disk is not
Foundations of Mechanics of Heterogeneous Media for Accretion Disks
Here attention is focused on one of the fundamental problems in astrophysics—the formation of protoplanetary accretion disks around late-type stars whose special case is the origin of the Solar

In this paper, we develop the analysis of a two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamical configuration for an axially symmetric and rotating plasma (embedded in a dipolelike magnetic field), modeling the
The Standard Model of Disc Accretion
Accretion discs are powerful energy factories in our Universe. They effectively transform the potential energy of gravitational interaction to emission, thereby unraveling the physics of distant


Implosive accretion and outbursts of active galactic nuclei
A model and simulation code have been developed for time-dependent axisymmetric disk accretion onto a compact object including for the first time the influence of an ordered magnetic field. The
Magnetic viscosity in relativistic accretion disks
We formulate a detailed, self-consistent model of magnetic viscosity in an accretion disk around a rotating, Kerr black hole, in order to help clarify the nature of viscosity in the theory of
Jet Outbursts from Fast Accretion in a Disk with Zebra-Stripe Magnetic Field
The optical, X-ray, and gamma-ray outbursts, as well as the associated formation of relativistically moving components of parsec-scale jets of some active galactic nuclei (AGNs) are interpreted as
On the Structure of Advective Accretion Disks at High Luminosity
Global solutions of optically thick advective accretion disks around black holes are constructed. The solutions are obtained by solving numerically a set of ordinary differential equations
The inner structure of an accretion disc around a magnetic neutron star
Abstract The effect of a magnetic binary neutron star on the inner structure of its accretion disc is considered. The stellar field penetrates the disc and toroidal field is created as a result of
Self-collimated electromagnetic jets from magnetized accretion disks
The global electrodynamics of a viscous resistive accretion disk around a Schwarzschild black hole with a force-free plasma outside of the disk is worked out. The magnetic field in the disk is
Disk accretion by magnetic neutron stars.
A model for disk accretion by a rotating magnetic neutron star is proposed which includes a detailed description of matter flow in the transition region between the disk and the magnetosphere. It is
Simulations of jet formation from a magnetized accretion disk
Axisymmetric magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations have been made of the formation of jets from a Keplerian disk threaded by a magnetic field. The disk is treated as a boundary condition, where
Bimodal behavior of accretion disks: Theory and application to Cygnus X-1 transitions
We develop a theory of Newtonian accretion disks based on an explicit formulation of viscous stresses arising from turbulent magnetic fields which are generated by Keplerian differential rotation of
A model for compact x-ray sources: accretion by rotating magnetic stars
The physics of accretion onto compact stars is considered, taking into account both the effects of stellar rotation and a stellar magnetic field. We show that far from the star the stellar magnetic
