Abstract

Starting from a set of general equations governing the dynamics of a magneto-fluid around a compact object on curved space time, a fairly simple analytical solution for a test disc having only azimuthal component of velocity has been obtained. The electromagnetic field associated has a modified dipole configuration which admits a reasonable pressure profile for the case of fully relativistic treatment of Keplerian type of velocity distribution
