A note on the existence of Alfvén surface waves

  • C. Uberoi
Research Notes


The Alfvén surface waves can arise due to the discontinuity in the Alfvén speed across the interface along which these waves propagate. This note studies the relationship between vA1 and vA2 which is required for the existence of Alfvén surface waves in low-β plasma.
