Bulletin of National University of Uzbekistan: Mathematics and Natural Sciences


This review article describes the diversity of astrophysical jets. The differences between relativistic and slower stellar jets are described briefly. The data on recent studies of stellar jets, which led to the discovery of the asymmetry of their emissions - a mismatch of their parameters in the opposite components. A review of the physical mechanisms that is proposed to explain the observed asymmetry is given.
