[20.16] Force Free Relativistic Electrodynamics - Numerical Simulations

A. I. MacFadyen, R. D. Blandford (Caltech)

Numerical simulations of relativistic magnetized plasma in the force free limit are presented. A new numerical code ("3-FORM") has been constructed to study time-dependent force-free plasma in diverse astrophysical environments. These include magnetospheres surrounding compact objects and associated outflows. The code, which is pseudo-spectral, three-dimensional and written for arbitrary coordinate systems will be described along with the preliminary calculations.
