The magneto-spheric accretion onto young objects: A theoretical review
Claudio Zanni (LAOG, Grenoble)

2 février 2009

In this talk I will review the main theoretical aspects concerning the interaction between the magnetosphere of a young forming star and a surrounding accretion disk. Nowadays, it is clear that young stars are magnetically active, having large-scale magnetic fields of a few kG. Such a field is strong and extensive enough to control the accretion onto the star and to play a crucial role in the regulation of the stellar angular momentum. In fact, one of the most puzzling aspects of low-mass protostars (so called T Tauri stars) is that they exhibit slow and constant rotation periods (3–10 days, well below their break-up speed) despite the fact that they are still actively accreting and contracting.
Referring to analytical and numerical arguments, I will first analyze the mechanism which leads to the truncation of the disk and the formation of accretion funnels onto the surface of the star. I will then elucidate different solutions to balance the stellar spin-up due to the accretion torque and to contraction. In order to evaluate their efficiency, I will show results of numerical MHD simulations and describe different interaction regimes between the magnetosphere and the accretion disk.
