Global simulations of self-gravitating magnetized protoplanetary disks

23 Jan 2020 Deng Hongping Mayer Lucio Latter Henrik

In the early stages of a protoplanetary disk, when its mass is a significant fraction of its star's, turbulence generated by gravitational instability (GI) should feature significantly in the disk's evolution. At the same time, the disk may be sufficiently ionised for magnetic fields to play some role in the dynamics... (read more)
