Poynting Flux Dominated Black Hole-Accretion Disk System as GRB Power House

  • Hyun Kyu Lee (a1) and Hui-Kyung Kim (a1)

Abstract

We investigate a black hole-accretion disk system which is dominated by Poynting flux to see whether it can be a possible power house for GRBs. For a set of GRBs for which the isotropic energy and Td are known, the effect of the disk mass and the magnetic field are discussed quantitatively using a simplified model. It is demonstrated explicitly that there is a lower limit on the angular momentum parameter for a given GRB energy. It is found that the most energetic GRBs can only accommodate relatively rapid-rotating black holes at the center.
