Wavenumber shift of an obliquely propagating ion-cyclotron whistler

  • S. N. Paul (a1), A. K. Sur (a1) and G. Pakira (a1)


An expression for the nonlinear wavenumber shift of an obiquely propagating ion-cyclotron whistler in the presence of negative ions are derived. The effects of the intensity of the wave, the ion-cyclotron frequency, the negative-ion concentration and the propagation angle on the wavenumber shift of whistlers is discussed. Numerical estimations are also made of the wavenumber shift.
