 About the Book 

Jets are ubiquitous in the Universe, but ill-understood. Conservative books base their interpretations on focused stellar winds, ejected bullets, black-hole central engines, and in-situ upgrading of electron energies via shocks. This volume,MoreJets are ubiquitous in the Universe, but ill-understood. Conservative books base their interpretations on focused stellar winds, ejected bullets, black-hole central engines, and in-situ upgrading of electron energies via shocks. This volume, however, attempts a uniform interpretation of the bipolar-flow family, involving extremely relativistic pair plasma as the jet substance, and rotating magnets (possibly burning disks) as the central engines. Among the discussed sources are SS 433, YSO jets, planetary nebulae, our galactic center, and the class of extragalactic QSOs, both radio-loud and radio-quiet.
