Abstract: Accretion disks around massive black holes will themselves become massive. The α-viscosity can no longer be valid in the case where the accretion disk mass is comparable to the mass of the accretor, as shown by Duschl et al. (1998). Using a modified viscosity prescription, one that takes into consideration the massive disk, leads to noticeably different disk structure. We present preliminary results of black holes with masses ranging from 106 to 1010 Modot and mass accretion rates ranging from 10-9 to 101 Modot/a.
