We examine the stability of the Venus ionopause in light of the importance of gravitation and curvature. Using a one fluid approximation for the equation of motion of the plasma, and ignoring the… Expand

The MHD stability of the cometary ionopause is investigated by nonlinear analysis, describing that stability in terms of the finite perturbation amplitude of both Kelvin-Helmholtz and Rayleigh-Taylor… Expand

Selected problems of the solar wind — comet tail coupling that are currently accessible to quantitative analysis are reviewed. The model of a comet tail as a plasma cylinder separated by a tangential… Expand

We assume that the dipole wobble excites Alfven waves which propagate outward along the field lines. The plasma density in the outer Jovian magnetosphere is derived from the amplitude of such diurnal… Expand

Abstract As a result of the interaction of the solar wind with the geomagnetic field, on the noon boundary of the Earth's magnetosphere, high-latitude neutral points are formed in whose neighbourhood… Expand

The omnidirectional spectrum of the cosmic ray albedo neutrons at relativistic energies has been estimated from the geometrical considerations. Since angular distribution of the albedo neutron flux… Expand
