Hydromagnetic surface waves in a compressible medium

  • A. Satya Narayanan
Letter to the Editor


The dispersive characteristic of hydromagnetic surface waves along a plasma-plasma interface when the upper fluid moves with a uniform velocity is discussed. The region of propagation of these waves is shifted above or below depending on whether the basic velocity (uniform)U≷0.
