On characterizing nonlocality and anisotropy in magnetorotational instability

  title={On characterizing nonlocality and anisotropy in magnetorotational instability},
  author={Farrukh Nauman and Eric G. Blackman},
The extent to which angular momentum transport in accretion discs is primarily local or non-local and what determines this is an important avenue of study for understanding accretion engines. Taking a step along this path, we analyze simulations of the magnetorotational instability (MRI) by calculating energy and stress power spectra in stratified isothermal shearing box simulations in several new ways. We divide our boxes in two regions, disc and corona where the disc is the MRI unstable… CONTINUE READING
