Modelling of relativistic magnetically dominated plasmas (Chair: JM Stone)

Kommissarov, S (Leeds)
Wednesday 13 October 2004, 10:10-10:35

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


Many phenomena of relativistic astrophysics involve flows of magnetically dominated plasma which are somewhat difficult for analytical and numerical modelling. In this talk we describe three closly related mathematical frameworks used in recent studies of black hole magnetospheres, namely resistive electrodynamics, magnetodynamics, and magnetohydrodynamics, focusing on their advantages and limitations. Particular attention is paid to numerical aspects revealed in recent simulations.
