    • A comparative study of single-temperature and two-temperature accretion flows around black holes


      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      We study the properties of sub-Keplerian accretion disk around a stationary black hole, considering bremsstrahlung, synchrotron and Comptonization of synchrotron photons as radiative cooling mechanisms active in the disk. We obtain the solutions of two-temperature global accretion flow (TTAF) and compare it with the results obtained from single-temperature (STAF) model.We observe that flow properties, in particular, the radial profile of electron and ion temperatures differ noticeably in the adopted models for flows with identical boundary conditions fixed at the outer edge of the disk. Since the electron temperature is one of the key factors to regulate the radiative processes, we argue that physically motivated description of electron temperature needsto be considered in studying the astrophysical phenomena around black holes.

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
