Tearing up the disc: misaligned accretion on to a binary

Abstract

In a recent paper we have shown that the evolution of a misaligned disc around a spinning black hole can result in tearing the disc into many distinct planes. Tearing discs with random orientations produce direct dynamical accretion on to the hole in ≈ 70% of all cases. Here we examine the evolution of a misaligned disc around a binary system. We show that… (More)
