Article about jets variability in ApJ

jet_profile_with_theta_allOur article on “Variability of magnetically-dominated jets from accreting black holes” is accepted to the Astrophysical Journal.

In this paper, Agnieszka Janiuk, Bestin James and Ishika Palit present the results of axisymmetric calculations of the structure and evolution of central engine, composed of magnetized torus around Kerr black hole that is launching a non-uniform jet. We probe the jet energetics at different points along the line of sight, and we measure the jet time variability as localized in these specific regions. We quantify our results by computing the minimum variability timescales and power density spectra.

Proposal to QUANTera submitted

We submitted a proposal for QUANTEra call 2021 – Applied Quantum Science (AQS).

The project is entitled “Fast detection of gravitational waves using quantum machine learning” and is led by our colleagues from Romania, Institute of Space Science/Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics, at Bucharest-Ilfov.
