Highβ, energy flux conserving equilibria for alfvén wave

  • D. N. Vyas

Magnetohydrodynamic waves in a high β, collisionless plasma with smooth variations in plasma parameters across the boundary is studied. The heating of collisionless plasma is analyzed in one dimension, including the effects of shear magnetic field and compressibility of plasma. Energy absorption rate and dispersion relation between central plasma, surrounded by tenuous plasma have also been derived.
