Accretion Disk Modeling

Here are some results of the dripping handrail model of accretion disk phenomena,

This is adapted from work done byKarl Young and Jeffrey Scargle [1].

Run 1

This run is an early attempt at modeling the accretion disks using only the diffusion equation with an added rate of accretion onto the disk, and a mod function that dumps the matter out of a cell in the accretion disk when it reaches a certain critical density abstracted to be 1.
