Invited talk in the parallel session Accretion discs and jets Accretion Discs and Jets

Speaker

Prof. Ramesh Narayan (Harvard University)

Description

Many accreting black holes in Nature are observed to have relativistic jets, and it has been suggested that the jets receive much of their power from the spin energy of the central black hole. There is considerable evidence in support of this idea from computer simulations of accretion flows. The talk will review some recent progress in this field.
