(Polar jets) Is it possible that black holes radiate substantial amount of the mass/energy they accrete?
Is the amount of energy a black hole emit through polar jets comparable to the mass it accretes or is it negligible? Here I am mostly concerned about the observational findings as opposed to the ...
The centers of black holes and quasars often have jets coming out the two poles of an accretion disk, say north and south. Is it known if the two jets spin in the same direction or opposite ...
Some black holes emit jets that are rapidly circling the poles of what appears to be a sphere at the center of the black hole, cf. Fig. 1. Is there really a sphere here and how far (relative to the ...
why streams of energy-matter are emited along the axis of rotation of a compact object? (or) what is the reason that they are emited along the axis of rotation of a compact object?
In the literature one often finds covariant relativistic generalizations of classical non equilibrium statistical equations (Boltzmann, Vlasov, Landau, fokker-planck, etc...) but I wonder what is the ...
what is the simplest way to understand the physics of relativistic jets? we know that they have axial symmetry with very tight angular spread, presumably aligned with the axis of rotation of the ...
How are they formed? And why are they so bright?
