On the formation of a quasi-stationary twisted disc after a tidal disruption event

M Xiang-Gruess, PB Ivanov & John Papaloizou
We investigate misaligned accretion discs formed after tidal disruption events that occur when a star encounters a supermassive black hole. We employ the linear theory of warped accretion discs to find the shape of a disc for which the stream arising from the disrupted star provides a source of angular momentum that is misaligned with that of the black hole. For quasi-steady configurations, we find that when the warp diffusion or propagation time is large...
