Relativistic Dissipative Accretion Flow onto Black Hole

  title={Relativistic Dissipative Accretion Flow onto Black Hole},
  author={Hiromi Saida and Rohta Takahashi and Hiroki Nagakura},
  journal={arXiv: High Energy Astrophysical Phenomena},
Dissipations, e.g. heat flow and bulk and shear viscosities, cause the transport of energy, momentum and angular momentum, which is the essence of accretion of matters onto celestial objects. Dissipations are usually described by the Fourier and Navier-Stokes laws ("classic laws" of dissipations). However the classic laws result in an infinitely fast propagation of dissipations. In relativistic formulation, the classic laws of dissipations violate the causality, and hence no relativistic theory… Expand

A fast numerical scheme for causal relativistic hydrodynamics with dissipation
A stable and fast numerical scheme for relativistic dissipative hydrodynamics based on Israel–Stewart theory is developed, and Riemann solver can be used for obtaining numerical flux for the inviscid step. Expand


Stability and causality in dissipative relativistic fluids
The standard theory of relativistic dissipative fluid mechanics developed by Eckart contains several undesirable features: thermal and viscous fluctuations propagate acausally; there exist genericExpand
Viscosity in spherically symmetric accretion
The influence of viscosity on the flow behaviour in spherically symmetric accretion has been studied here. The governing equation chosen has been the Navier–Stokes equation. It has been found that atExpand
Extended irreversible thermodynamics
A new formulation of nonequilibrium thermodynamics, known as extended irreversible thermodynamics, has fuelled increasing attention. The basic features of this formalism and several applications areExpand
Nonstationary irreversible thermodynamics: A Causal relativistic theory
Abstract Conventional theories of irreversible thermodynamics predict instantaneous propagation of thermal and viscous effects. This defect can be traced to the omission of terms quadratic in theExpand
Two-temperature steady-state thermodynamics for a radiation field
A candidate for a consistent steady-state thermodynamics is constructed for a radiation field in vacuum sandwiched by two black bodies of different temperatures. Because of the collisionless natureExpand
Radiation and the violation of bilinearity in the thermodynamics of irreversible processes
Abstract Even though irreversible thermodynamics is meant to be a universal theory for nonequilibrium processes, that theory has not taken nonequilibrium radiation processes, which can normally beExpand
Nonlinear pathologies in relativistic heat-conducting fluid theories
Abstract Hyperbolicity and stability are analyzed in the nonlinear regimes of two theories of relativistic heat-conducting fluids. Both theories are found to be unstable and non-hyperbolic forExpand

We overview the theory of black hole accretion disks. In the first half, we introduce basic accretion disk models with emphasis on optically thin, advection-dominated accretion flows (ADAFs). We thenExpand
