  • Aims. We examine whether ejection phenomena from accreting T Tauri stars can be described by only one type of self-collimated jet model. Methods. We present analytical kinematic predictions valid soon after the Alfven surface for all types of steady magnetically s elf-confined jets. Results. We show that extended disc winds, X-winds, and stellar winds occupy distinct regions in the poloidal speed vs. specific an gular momentum plane. Comparisons with current observations of T Tauri jets yield… CONTINUE READING
