About this book

In 2008, the European FP6 JETSET project ended. JETSET, for Jet, Simulations, Experiments, and Theory, was a joint research network of European expert teams on protostellar jets. The present proceedings are a collection of contributions presenting new results obtained by those groups since the end of the JETSET program. This is also the occasion to celebrate Kanaris Tsinganos’ important contributions to this network and for his enlightening insight in the subject that inspired us all. Some of the former JETSET students are now in the academic world and the subject has never been so alive. So we present here a collection of results of what has been done in the field of protostellar jets in the past ten years from the theoretical, numerical, observational and experimental point of view. We also present new challenges in the field of protostellar jets and what we should expect from the development of new instruments and new numerical codes in the near future. We also gather results on the impact of the study of protostellar jets on other jet studies in particular on relativistic jets. As a matter of fact, it is time for a new network.


About the authors

Born in 1966, Christophe Sauty entered the Ecole Normale de Saint Cloud in 1986. After obtaining a PhD in Astrophysics at the University Paris 7 under the supervision of Kanaris Tsinganos and Jean Heyvaerts in 1993, he was appointed Maître de Conférences at this same University. He is Professor at Paris Observatory since 2005. Christophe Sauty works in the field of accelerated magnetohydrodynamical flows applied to winds, jets and accretion. He started studying the Solar Wind and physics of the corona, rapidly moving to young stellars, extragalactic and relativistic flows.
