Conference paper


We investigate the jet formation region of relativistic magnetic jets using stationary axisymmetric MHD models. We numerically calculate the field structure of the collimating jet and the flow acceleration. Special or general relativistic effects are considered. Stationarity allows for a global treatment of the jet physics. Our results are applicable to highly relativistic jets of AGN and microquasars.
