Abstract

The linear stability of a radiation-absorbing ionizing shock wave (light detonation waves) in the presence of a uniform electromagnetic field is investigated. The applied electric field is considered to be normal to the wave front and the magnetic field to be parallel to the front and perpendicular to the plane in which perturbations propagate. The medium satisfies a two-parameter equation of state. Analytic stability criteria are obtained. For a perfect gas the effect of the electromagnetic field and radiation on shock wave stability is determined.
