I'm looking for some resources in magnetized accretion disk. Preferably a book or an article review that starts with un-magnetized accretion disk theory.

While I have some familiarity with accretion disk theory (I'm familiar with the Shakura Sunyaev model), I would prefer to reaffirm mi ground in HD models before moving to MHD models.

  • $\begingroup$ There is a rather detailed and useful article by Paul Bellan in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society journal, doi:10.1093/mnras/stw562. To get the unmagnetized version, just take the limit as $\mathbf{B} \rightarrow 0$. $\endgroup$ – honeste_vivere Feb 7 '18 at 15:52
