Dr. Ioana Duțan
Welcome! My research interests include theoretical and numerical modeling for studying relativistic jets from black holes in active galactic nuclei (AGN) and gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), and plasma shocks and instabilities in such jets.
Special Issue: Black Holes and Relativistic Jets
The connection between black holes and relativistic jets across all scales of black hole mass has long been supported by observational data. The aim of this Special Issue is to explore various aspects of the black hole-jet connection by bringing together recent results of developments on theoretical modeling, state-of-the-art numerical simulations, and high resolution observations. We welcome contributions on novel achievements in modeling accretion onto black holes, spin evolution of the black holes, certain aspects of jet physics (e.g., jet launching mechanisms, magnetic field configuration, acceleration, collimation, or non-thermal emission), and observational constrains on phenomena around supermasive black holes and X-ray binaries, including both the small and large scale jet structure.
