“Magnetic Extraction of Energy from Black Hole Systems”

Magnetic extraction of energy from black hole (BH) systems is presented, in which three main energy mechanisms, i.e., the Blandford-Payne process, Blandford-Znajek process, and magnetic coupling process, are introduced based on BH accretion. Application of these energy mechanisms to high-energy astrophysics such as GRBs, AGNs and BHXB is briefly discussed.
