In science:

For magnetically controlled outflows, only a fraction of the field lines (and hence streamlines) allow outflow.
Magnetically Controlled Outflows from Hot Jupiters
In addition, passage through the sonic point depends sensitively on the divergence operator (at the transition) which depends on the configuration of the streamlines.
Magnetically Controlled Outflows from Hot Jupiters
As the magnetic field strength of the background (from the star) increases relative to that of the planet, more of the surface has open field lines, but not all of the streamlines allow for smooth sonic transitions.
Magnetically Controlled Outflows from Hot Jupiters
An understanding of this physics can be attained through the solution to the Grad-Shafranov equation (e.g., Shafranov 1966), which self-consistently determines the distribution of streamlines (see also Cai et al. 2008).
