Global Radiation-Magnetohydrodynamic Simulations of Black Hole Accretion Flow and Outflow: Unified Model of Three States


Understanding gas accretion to the central supermassive black hole of galaxies has developed greatly and the standard disk model which appeared in the 1970s, has been extended by a slim disk model and a quasi-one-dimensional advection dominated accretion flow (ADAF) sometimes know as a radiatively inefficent accretion flow (RIAF) model....

Non-Equilibrium Ionization State and Two-Temperature Structure in the Linked Region of Abell 399 and Abell 401


Figure: Side-on view of galaxies colliding from the left and right. White solid square is a region that has already been observed by the Japanese X-ray satellite Suzaku (Fujita et al. 2008 PASJ, 60, S343), while the white dotted line shows the newly predicted region of the shock-front. The panels...
