Conference paper


Results are presented from an ongoing research programme to study non-stationary disc accretion onto black holes using a time-dependent Lagrangian computer code and working within the “slim disc” approach. Phenomena considered include limit cycle behaviour, instabilities at the sonic point and disco-seismic modes.
