Ultra-relativistically hot jets (Kohler et al. 2012 ; Kohler and Begelman 2015 ) in power-law atmospheres with \(\pmb{\kappa=8/3, 7/3}\) , and 2 (from left to right). The color-coded images show \(\log_{10}(p\rho^{-\gamma})\). The dark blue region along the jet boundary is obviously a numerical artifact as its entropy is lower than that of the initial solution anywhere on the grid.
