[118.04] Shocks in the Black Hole Magnetosphere of Accretion-Powered AGN

S. Tsuruta, K. Fukumura (Montana State University)

Previous work on winds from the black hole magnetosphere in connection with rotation-powered AGN is extended to MHD accretion flows onto a supermassive black hole in the magnetosphere of an accretion-powered AGN. Fully general reltivistic treatment is applied. Shock formation in such accretion flows is investigated. The results will be reported. Possible observational implication will be discussed.
