On the vertical structure of ADAFs

Abstract: In this talk I will discuss on some challenging aspects of the vertical structure of ADAFs. Observational evidences that indicate the hot accretion flows around the black holes are associated with outflows, wind and jets. So it is worthwhile to revisit the vertical structure of the hot accretion flows. In this talk I will discuss the effects of large-scale magnetic fields in hot accretion flows for asymmetric/symmetric congurations with respect to the equatorial plane. The solutions that we have found show that the large-scale asymmetric magnetic field can signicantly affect the dynamics of the flow and also cause notable outflows in the outer parts. At the end, I will present exact solutions for vertical structure of ADAFs using Fourier analysis.
