Dynamics and Energetics of Turbulent, Magnetized Disk Accretion around Black Holes: A First-Principles approach to Disk-Corona-Outflow Coupling

Kuncic, Zdenka; Bicknell, Geoffrey

Description

We present an analytic description of turbulent, magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) disk accretion around black holes that specifically addresses the relationship between radial and vertical mean field transport of mass, momentum, and energy, thereby complementing and extending numerical simulations. The azimuthal-vertical component of the magnetic stress is fundamental to an understanding of disk-corona-outflow coupling: when it is important for driving the angular momentum transport and mass accretion...[Show more]
