Why are streams of energy-matter emitted along the axis of rotation of compact objects? (or) what is the reason that they are emitted along the axis of rotation of a compact object?
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 ...
How are they formed? And why are they so bright?
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 ...
I am very curious if an easy calculable formula for the bremstrahlung radiation of deeply relativistic, charged particles exists, if they are moving on circular orbit: $P(E,m_0,Q,r)=?$ ...where ...
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 ...
(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 ...
