Linear kinetic waves in plasmas described by Kappa Distributions
In this chapter we present an overview of the excitation, propagation, and absorption of linear plasma waves in collisionless, spatially uniform, multicomponent, magnetized non-Maxwellian plasma characterized by a ...
On the Secondary Instability of Forced and Unforced Laminar Separation Bubbles
Previous studies demonstrate that the primary instability of laminar separation bubbles (LSB) on a flat-plate in the absence of external forcing is a three-dimensional centrifugal one. This work develops a weakly non-linear ...
On thermal instabilities in a viscoelastic fluid
(International Journal of Non-Linear Mechanics, 2006-01)
Effect of a large-amplitude circularly polarized wave on linear beam-plasma electromagnetic instabilities
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2003)
In a previous paper, sufficiently large-amplitude and left-handed ‘‘pump waves’’ propagating parallel to the background magnetic field were shown to stabilize a moderately dense beam in a proton plasma against the ...
KINETIC EFFECTS ON THE PARAMETRIC DECAYS OF CIRCULARLY POLARIZED ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES IN AN ELECTRON-POSITRON PLASMA
(AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF PHYSICS, 2001)
Parametric decays of a circularly polarized wave in an electron–positron plasma, including relativistic effects on the particle motion in the wave field, are studied. The analysis is based on the Vlasov equation in order ...
Electrostatic instabilities induced by large-amplitude left-hand polarized waves
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2004)
We study the effect of a large-amplitude left-hand polarized wave on ion acoustic instabilities. We show that the presence of a finite amplitude left-hand polarized wave produces electrostatic instabilities above a threshold ...
Shear-driven Instabilities in Hall-Magnetohydrodynamic Plasmas
(IOP Publishing, 2011-07)
The large-scale dynamics of plasmas is well described within the framework of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD). However, whenever the ion density of the plasma becomes sufficiently low, the Hall effect is likely to become ...
Three-dimensional sand ripples as the product of vortex instability
