Mass-flow leaving the disc and crossing the relativistic accretion gap (after Abramowicz et al. 2007). Top: Keplerian angular momentum versus the angular momentum in the flow. Bottom: The equipotential surfaces and the distribution of fluid in a meridional cross-section of the disc-configuration. The yellow area denotes the fluid in the disc, while the orange area corresponds to the overflow modulated by the oscillations. Enhanced luminosity arises as the flow enters the boundary layer (light-blue colour).
