« What can black hole jets do for you? »

Alexander Tchekhovskoy
Dept. Astronomy Astroph., Northwestern Univ. (Evanston, Illinois, Etats-Unis d'Amérique)

In this talk, I will review the physics of accretion and outflows, focusing on the relativistic jets, as revealed by 3D general relativistic simulations of magnetized plasma near spinning black holes. I will discuss the conditions necessary for jet formation, what the jets can reveal about the central engine, the effects the jets can have on their environment.
