Viscosity in accretion discs. [for binary stars]
Author and Affiliation:
Katz, J. I.
Abstract: Both HerX-1 and SS433 may contain accretion disks slaved to a precessing companion star. If so, it is possible to bound the effective viscosity in these disks. The results, in terms of the disk parameter alpha, are lower bounds of 0.01 for HerX-1 and of 0.1 for SS433.
