As Figure 8 for model B with \(\pmb{\kappa=1}\) . As the Poynting-flux vanishes on the axis (and the thermal energy is negligible), we obtain a hollow jet with fastest region away from the axis. Due to the increased fast-magneto-sonic speed (thus lower Mach-number) compared to the case of Figure 8, no reconfinement-shock forms and the jet-oscillation frequency is increased.
