Fig. 8

As in Fig. 7 but for q = 0.01 with softening length 0.6H after 100 orbits (left panel) and 800 orbits (right panel). As the mass ratio is smaller in this case than for Fig. 7, the gap in the disk is narrower. The companion, indicated by a small red circle, is found in general to orbit closer to the inner disk edge at earlier times. In the left-hand panel, the companion grazes the inner edge slightly above the x axis for x< 0. This enhances the accretion rate at that stage.

This figure is made of several images, please see below:
