Wind-driving protostellar accretion discs - II. Numerical method and illustrative solutions

Salmeron, Raquel; Konigl, Arieh; Wardle, Mark

Description

We continue our study of weakly ionized protostellar accretion discs that are threaded by a large-scale magnetic field and power a centrifugally driven wind. It has been argued that there is already evidence in several protostellar systems that such a wind transports a significant fraction of the angular momentum from at least some part of the disc. We model this situation by considering a radially localized disc model in which the matter is everywhere well coupled to the field and the wind is...[Show more]
