**Collimated, supersonic outflows (jets)**

are generated in many astrophysical environments AGN pulsars YSO X-ray transients

3
**Wide range of scales and velocities**

Scales from below the pc up to Mpc Highly relativistic velocities (AGN, GRB) Mildly relativistic velocities (X-ray transients – galactic superluminals, SS433) Few hundreds km/s (YSO)

YSO jets HST images HH 30 1" 10''

**AGN Jets Scales up to Mpc Non-thermal synchrotron radiation**

Collimation angle can be few degrees Observed at different energies 7 time scales 10 yrs

BASIC PROBLEMS Launching Launching phase: acceleration from disk and collimation • Propagation Propagation phase: confinement, stability, entrainment • Termination Termination: interaction with external medium

Stability of jets Kelvin-Helmholtz instability Transfer of momentum, entrainment Effects on the jet evolution Consider first a simple case, simple planar shear layer Velocity profile Vx = tanh y AGN: relativistic case

10
**Linear stability: different regimes depending on**

the Mach number, monotonic instability at low Mach, overstability at high Mach Nonlinear evolution dominated by vortices or by waves

11
**Relativistic cases: correspondence at equal Mr = gv/gs cs**

we showed in linear analysis (Bodo, Mignone & Rosner 2004) that the stability limits (vortex sheet) are the same if expressed in Mr We introduced a tracer passively advected to distinguish the material on the two sides Layer width tracer Layer width velocity

**JET STABILITY Bodo et al. 1998 Linear phase Acoustic phase Mixing**

14
**Fanaroff-Riley classification**

VLA FR I or jet dominated Cygnus A VLA FR II or lobe dominated “classical doubles”

15
**Jet velocities No direct velocity measures**

Evidences for relativistic motions on pc scale come from: Superluminal motions Jet one-sidedness Rapid variabilities High brightness temperatures

16
**In FRI radiosources jets on kpc scale become symmetric**
