FIGURE 5.4 False-color simulated image of the density of matter accreting from a spinning gas disk onto a black hole. The image shows a cross-sectional cut through one side of the disk, with the black hole represented as a black semicircle on the left side. A striking feature is the large, chaotic fluctuations in the density caused by convective motions in the disk. SOURCE: J. Stone, Princeton University.
