Abstract: The system of a super-massive Black Hole with accreting matters is widely believed to be the central engine of the galactic nuclei. High energy radiations are generated there, and relativistic jets are often observed. To discuss gas accretion onto the black hole and outgoing jet formation, we have formulated trans-fast magnetosonic flow solution without the regularity condition analysis at the fast magnetosonic surfaces in a stationary and axisymmetric black hole magnetosphere. We consider the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) inflows/outflows and discuss the distributions of plasma density, flow velocity and magnetic field, and apply the solution to the M87 jet.
