Magnetically-dominated magnetosphere of a near-NHEK Kerr black hole - A perturbative approach

With the continuously growing interest in active galactic nuclei (AGN) and the propagation of their associated jets, the subject of energy extraction from rotating Kerr black holes is still highly relevant today. By now, several general relativistic magnetohydrodynamic simulations validate the Blandford-Znajek process which is a black hole energy extraction mechanism first proposed by Blandford and Znajek in 1977.
