[30.03] Jets from Stellar-Mass Black Holes

P. Kaaret (U. Iowa)

Observations of jets from stellar-mass black holes in the Milky Way offer a unique opportunity to study the dynamical evolution of relativistic jets on time scales inaccessible for jets from active galactic nuclei. We review recent radio and X-ray observations of jets from Galactic black hole candidates with emphasis on the recent discovery of large-scale X-ray jets and discuss the implications for our understanding of the dynamics and energetics of relativistic jets.
