General Relativistic Magnetohydrodynamic Simulations of Jet Formation with a Thin Keplerian Disk

Abstract

We have performed several simulations of black hole systems (non-rotating, black hole spin parameter a = 0.0 and rapidly rotating, a = 0.95) with a geometrically thin Keplerian disk using the newly developed RAISHIN code. The simulation results show the formation of jets driven by the Lorentz force and the gas pressure gradient. The jets have mildly… (More)
