Simulations of black hole accretion and jets

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


Alexander Tchekhovskoy (Northwestern University)


In this talk I will review the recent insights into the physics of black hole accretion and jets enabled by the advances in general relativistic numerical simulations. In particular, I will discuss how the jets form, collimate, accelerate, and interact with the ambient medium.
