On the Eddington limit in accretion discs

Abstract

Although the Eddington limit has originally been derived for stars, recently its relevance for the evolution of accretion discs has been realized. We discuss the question whether the classical Eddington limit – which has been applied globally for almost all calculations on accretion discs – is a good approximation if applied locally in the disc. For this… (More)
