### 3-D general relativistic MHD simulations of generating jets

Abstract:
We have performed the first full 3-D GRMHD simulation of a Schwarzschild black hole with a freely falling corona. The preliminary simulation results show that the accretion disc is falling with the corona and that the proper pressure increases near the black hole, as in the previous axisymmetric simulations. We expect that in this case an instability around the black hole will occur as a result of the steep pressure gradient and the twisted magnetic fields. We plan to investigate how the instability affects jet formation.
