Extended general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics: Formulation and application to black hole accretion (2016-11-23)One of the long standing problems in accretion disk theory is that concerning black holes that accrete at a rate much lower than the Eddington rate. The plasma that constitutes the disk is in a regime where the Coulomb ...
General relativistic radiation magnetohydrodynamics, with applications to black hole accretion disks (2018-04-18)Electron temperatures in the inner region of accretion disks around black holes are set by the balance of advection, viscous heating, and radiative interactions. At the lowest accretion rates, radiative processes may be ...
