11 Muduleye L Results based on accretion flow with 2. Results based on accretion flow with plasma wave heating mechanism Heating mechanism by turbulent plasma wave – (Pseudo-Newtonian potential adopted, r in = 6M)

12 Muduleye L Results based on accretion flow with 2. Results based on accretion flow with plasma wave heating mechanism Huang et al. (2009) Relativistic birefringence effects

13 Muduleye L Results based on accretion flow with 2. Results based on accretion flow with plasma wave heating mechanism Huang et al. (2009) RM = n. B Degeneracy between T e and  p Smaller  p, larger RM (Flare-dominated)

14 Muduleye L Results based on accretion flow with 2. Results based on accretion flow with plasma wave heating mechanism Kerr Metric adopted r in =r + Small  p leads to large RM to decrease CP in sub-mm band.

Accretion Flow Structure Estimation with 1.3mm VLBI Huang, Takahashi, & Shen (2009) Potential to detect valley points on baselines between Hawaii and Western U.S. Compactness and symmetry of the emission region would be measured with ALMA joined. More information comes from detections along more directions. Flares may happen !!

17 Muduleye L. 17 Plasma wave heating mechanism Classical RIAF 4. Black Hole Spin Estimation with 1.3mm VLBI Huang, Takahashi, & Shen (2009), VLBI data from Doeleman et al. (2008) Model-dependent Model-independent: Shadow shape; Periodicity

18 Muduleye L. 18 Summary We consider the effects of relativity and birefringence self-consistently in the radiative transfer. LP and CP observations can give constraints on orientation, mass accretion rate, and plasma  p. The structure of the accretion flow, including the central black hole shadow, can be detected by potential 1.3mm- VLBI stations. The black hole spin parameter cannot be well-estimated without imaging, or periodicity detection.
