Self-Collimated Stationary Disk Winds

  • Jonathan Ferreira
  • Fabien Casse


In this contribution, we first review the theory of self-collimated jets launched from magnetized accretion disks (disk-winds originating from the first AUs). We show why it is crucial to solve in a self-consistent way the interplay between the resistive accretion disk and the ideal MHD jets. Indeed, this is the only way to get exact values for the disk ejection efficiency ξ (the jet mass load issue). Then, we show self-similar calculations of such accretion-ejection structures: first cold jets, then warm jets obtained in the presence of a hot disk chromosphere. Finally, we present for the first time an accretion-ejection flow crossing all three critical points.
