Accretion Physics from Horizon Scale Black Hole Images and Movies

Project Details

Description

Dr. Tchekhovskoy will provide an updated version of the ebhlight code that reads in harmpi restart data files and is compatible with the harmpi coordinate system (modified MKS coordinates with cylindrification). He will assist with carrying out radiation GRMHD simulations of M87 with ebhlight based on harmpi restart files. He will further be in charge of the analysis of simulation data to understand the physical origin of MAD flux eruption events and associated dissipation, and of implementing a scheme to evolve non-thermal particle distributions in ebhlight. Dr. Tchekhovskoy will further collaborate with Dr. Dexter and the graduate student on the remaining tasks listed in the proposal."
