Structural Instability of Reconnecting Current Layers

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 341)


The interrelation between the stability and the structure of current layers governs their nonlinear evolution and determines a reconnection regime. In this Chapter we study the structural instability of the reconnecting current layer, i.e. its evolutionarity.
