RAGA, C.; CANTO, J.  e  CASTELLANOS-RAMIREZ, A.. Asymptotic internal working surfaces of periodically variable jets. Rev. mex. astron. astrofis [online]. 2021, vol.57, n.1, pp.147-155.  Epub 30-Set-2021. ISSN 0185-1101.

We present a derivation based on the “center of mass formalism” of the asymptotic behaviour of internal working surfaces produced in a variable Herbig- Haro (HH) jet. We obtain the general solution for an arbitrary periodic ejection time-variability, and then show examples for a limited set of functional forms for the velocity and density time-evolutions. Finally, we derive a prescription for obtaining the time-averaged mass loss rate from observations of knots along an HH jet (based on the asymptotic solution), and apply it to derive the mass loss rate of the HH 1 jet.
