[81.13] Simulations of Relativistic Jet Formation

G. A. Richardson, K. I. Nishikawa (NSSTC / MSFC)

We present our computational results for the formation of relativistic jets using a three-dimensional general relativistic MHD simulation method. Our goal is to study the dynamics of an accretion disk with a magnetic field, and the associated formation of relativistic jets in the environment around a black hole. We present and compare our 2-D and 3-D simulation results, which demonstrate the initial stages of jet formation.

This project was funded in part by the National Research Council, Research Associateship program.
