Accretion and Ejections in Magnetized Disks
In this contribution I review the main challenges for theory and numerical simulation of accretion turbulence in disks. I then present briefly a solution we have elaborated in recent years to a part of these questions: we have found an MHD instability which occurs in the inner region of a disk in the configuration (poloidal field of the order of equipartition with the gas pressure) used for MHD jet models. This instability has the unique characteristic that it re-emits toward the corona a fraction of the energy and angular momentum it extracts from the disk. It is a good candidate to explain the low-frequency Quasi-Periodic Oscillation observed in X-ray binaries, and we believe that it might occur also in YSO.
