Longitudinal waves in a perpendicular collisionless plasma shock: Part 3. Te ˜ Ti

  • S. Peter Gary (a1)

This paper considers electrostatic waves in a Vlasov plasma of unmagnetized ions and magnetized electrons undergoing an E x B drift. The linear dispersion relation is solved numerically for Te ΰTi. For a fixed ratio of drift velocity to electron thermal velocity, the growth rates of the E x B electron drift instability are smaller, and the waves are stabilized at much smaller values of k. B than in the Te ≫ Ti case.
