The emission of propagating MHD waves from the boundaries of flow channels that are unstable to the Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability (KHI) in magnetized plasma is investigated. The KHI and MHD wave emission are found to be two competing processes. It is shown that the fastest growing modes of the KHI...
The Kelvin-Helmholtz instability (KHI) of magnetotail flow channels associated with bursty bulk flows (BBFs) is investigated. MHD oscillations of the channel in both kink and sausage modes are investigated for KHI, and both the primary and secondary KHIs are found that drive MHD waves. These...
Primary and secondary compressible Kelvin‐Helmholtz surface wave instabilities on the Earth's magnetopauseDownload
Primary and secondary Kelvin-Helmholtz surface wave modes on the Earth's magnetopause are studied within the framework of warm plasma ideal magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) across an infinitely thin magnetopause tangential discontinuity (TD). With the increase of background flow velocity, a...
Stability of Magnetohydrodynamic Shear Flow Boundaries: Kelvin-Helmholtz Instabilities and Emission of Magnetosonic WavesDownload
boundaries for the Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability (KHI) is investigated. We have focused our attention on the emission of magnetosonic waves from the Kelvin-Helmholtz (K-H) unstable shear flow boundaries of MHD plasmas. We have shown for the first time that the Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability is a...
