Recent progress in understanding the dynamics of astrophysical
jets and disks raises the possibility that a comprehensive
physical, rather than phenomenological, theory
may be within reach. The program will begin with a focus on
relativistic winds from pulsars, quasars, and gamma-ray bursts
and related problems in plasma physics. As the program
progresses the focus will shift toward the launching of jets
and the connection between outflows and accretion.
The final portion of the program will focus on the physics
of disks around young stars, white dwarfs, neutron
stars, and black holes.
