Introduction. For nearly 30 years it was known in astrophysics that the accretion of orbiting matter onto a compact central object drives the luminosity of systems such as Active Galactic Nuclei, neutron stars, black holes and white dwarfs, and that it is also fundamental to star formation. Finding plausible mech-anisms for the underlying angular momentum transport initially proved quite dif
