Funnel-15Funnel-15 

Funnel flow around a star with a dipole magnetic field, as seen from a coordinate system rotating with the star. The dipole moment makes and angle of 15 degrees with the star's rotation axis.

[video] (.avi,  approx. 2.1 MBt) 

Funnel-15Funnel-15-rot 

The same as Funnel-15, as seen by an external observer.

[video] (.avi,  approx. 4 MBt) 

Funnel-60Funnel-60 

Funnel flow around a star with a dipole magnetic field, as seen from a coordinate system rotating with the star. The dipole moment makes and angle of 60 degrees with the star's rotation axis.

[video] (.avi,  approx. 7 MBt) 

Instab sliceInstab-slice

Tongues (seen as density contours in the equatorial plane) pushing magnetic field lines aside on their way to the star.

[video] (.avi,  approx. 9.5 MBt) 

Instab-tonguesInstab-tongues 

Matter flow during accretion through instability. The angle between the  star's rotation axis and the dipole moment is 5 degrees.

[video] (.avi,  approx. 3.6 MBt) 

Complex fieldComplex field 

Magnetic field configuration of a star with a dipole + quadrupole magnetic field. The quadrupole axis makes an angle of 45 degrees with the dipole axis.

[video] (.avi,  approx. 24 MBt)
