On the Nature of Outflows from Low Angular Momentum Inflows Around Black Holes
Black holes capture matter from surroundings which form disk-like structures. These so-called accretion disks, under suitable conditions, give rise to jets and outflows which are also important components of black hole system. In recent times it has been reported that beside spin of the black hole, another parameter may be playing crucial role in determining the origin and acceleration of outflows and jets. The strength of centrifugal pressure supported shock wave in case of low angular momentum flow around black holes may be responsible for jets and outflows. The energy dissipation as well as mass loss rate across the shock may happen at the base of the jets and outflows. The outflow properties are determined by these parameters close to the black hole.
