Accretion disk
The idea of the instability of accretion disks around black holes, neutron stars and protoplanets might be revised. This is what theoretical plasma physicists Hans Goedbloed (DIFFER) and Rony Keppens (KU Leuven) argue. In a 48-page mathematical breakdown, they suggest a new paradigm for 3D turbulence in accretion disks. Their paper has been accepted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series.
