Clumpy AGN outflows due to thermal instability
(To appear in ApJ Letters)
In addition to the colorscheme used in the paper (orange, green, blue, and red for model A, B, C, and D - see solid lines),
these movies show symbols at every grid zone, which besides giving a sense of the numerical resolution, are color-coded blue and red to denote zones occupying the cold versus hot phases, respectively. Sonic points are marked with an 'X'.
This next set of movies shows the same 4 runs in the top panels and runs at 8x higher resolution in the bottom panels in order to judge the effects of numerical resolution.
Here is a global view, showing the full domain. Sonic surfaces are marked with a green contour.
This next movie is for the same run, but we zoom-in on the region within five inner radii.
