The formation and large-scale propagation of Poynting-dominated jets produced by accreting, rapidly rotating black hole systems are studied by numerically integrating the general relativistic magnetohydrodynamic equations of motion to follow the selfconsistent interaction between accretion disks and black holes. This study extends previous similar work by studying jets till t ≈ 10GM/c out to r ≈ 10GM/c, by which the jet is superfast magnetosonic and moves at a lab-frame bulk Lorentz factor of… CONTINUE READING
