Trφ and Rrφ are the average Maxwell stress and Reynolds stress respectively, and Lz ≡ Ax/(2πr) is the vertical integral length, which in our case equals the height of the computational domain at a given radius r.
Three Dimensional MHD Simulation of Circumbinary Accretion Disks: Disk Structures and Angular Momentum Transport
The angular momentum delivered through these torques is transported by two mechanisms: MHD stresses, mostly due to MRI-driven turbulence; and Reynolds stresses associated with coherent gas motions in the gap region.

On the other hand, beyond the gap region, the MHD stress always dominates the Reynolds stress by a factor (cid:38) 3.
Three Dimensional MHD Simulation of Circumbinary Accretion Disks: Disk Structures and Angular Momentum Transport
Within one binary separation, the Maxwell stress also exceeds the Reynolds stress, mainly because the Reynolds stress falls with the lower gas density near the boundary.
