Context. Analytical radially self-similar models are the best available solutions describing disk-winds, but they need several improvements. In a previous article, we introduced models of jets from truncated disks, i.e. evolved in time numerical simulations based on a radially self-similar MHD solution but including the effects of a finite radius of the jet-emitting disk, hence the outflow. In Paper I of this series, we compared these models with available observational data by varying the jet… Expand


Comparison of synthetic maps from truncated jet-formation models with YSO jet observations
Context. Significant progress has been made in the last years in the understanding of the jet formation mechanism through a combination of numerical simulations and analytical MHD models for outflowsExpand
Two-component jet simulations I. Topological stability of analytical MHD outflow solutions
Context. Observations of collimated outflows in young stellar objects indicate that several features of the jets can be understood by adopting the picture of a two-component outflow, wherein aExpand
Stability and structure of analytical MHD jet formation models with a finite outer disk radius
Context. Finite radius accretion disks are a strong candidate for launching astrophysical jets from their inner parts and disk-winds are considered as the basic component of such magneticallyExpand
Two-component jet simulations - II. Combining analytical disk and stellar MHD outflow solutions
Context. Theoretical arguments along with observational data of YSO jets suggest the presence of two steady components: a disk wind type outflow needed to explain the observed high mass loss ratesExpand
The radial structure of protostellar accretion disks : influence of jets
Context. The radial structure of accretion disks is a fundamental issue regarding star and planet formation. Many theoretical studies, focussing on different aspects such as e.g. disk emissivity orExpand
MHD simulations of jet acceleration from Keplerian accretion disks - The effects of disk resistivity
Context: Accretion disks and astrophysical jets are used to model many active astrophysical objects, such as young stars, relativistic stars, and active galactic nuclei. However, existing proposalsExpand
HST/STIS observations of the bipolar jet from RW Aurigae.
We have observed the bipolar jet from RW Aur A with STIS on board the HST. After continuum subtraction, morphological and kinematic properties of this outflow can be traced to within 0."1 from theExpand
The Origin of Jets from Young Stars: Steady State Disk Wind Models Confronted to Observations
We discuss in this contribution constraints on the origin of mass-loss from young stars brought by recent observations at high angular resolution (0.1″ = 14 AU) of the inner regions of winds from TExpand
Atomic t tauri disk winds heated by ambipolar diffusion
We summarize results on the thermal and ionization structure of self-similar, magnetically-driven, atomic disk winds heated by ambipolar diffusion. We improve upon earlier work by Safier byExpand
Systematic construction of exact magnetohydrodynamic models for astrophysical winds and jets
By a systematic method we construct general classes of exact and self-consistent axisymmetric magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) solutions describing flows that originate in the near environment of a centralExpand
