MHD Modelling of Astrophysical Jets
The modclling of plasma outfiows from central gravitating objects such as AGN is bricfly discussed via analytic examples in the context of ideal MHD. The exact solutions are produced via a nonlinear separation of the variables in the full set of the MHD equations. Attention is given to the questions of initial acceleration and collimation of the outflow. A quantitative: criterion is provided for the transition of the morphologies from highly collimated jets to non collimated winds.
