Ionospheric modification and parametric instabilities
Thresholds and linear growth rates for stimulated Brillouin and Raman scattering and for the parametric decay instability are derived by using arguments of energy transfer. For this purpose anExpand

Hydromagnetic stability at a fluid velocity discontinuity between compressible fluids.
Formal conditions are derived for the stability of a velocity discontinuity at a plane interface between two perfectly conducting, inviscid, compressible fluids, in the presence of uniform magneticExpand

On the stability of a plane vortex sheet with respect to three-dimensional disturbances
The previously established criterion for the stability of a vortex sheet with respect to two-dimensional disturbances in a compressible fluid is extended to three-dimensional disturbances, and it isExpand

Purely growing parametric instability in an inhomogeneous plasma
A simple method based on energy balance is used first to rederive the well-known threshold condition for the purely growing parametric instability in a homogeneous medium and later to estimate theExpand

Excitation of Parametric Instabilities by Radio Waves in the Ionosphere
The excitation of parametric instabilities by radio waves in a magnetoplasma is discussed. A uniform medium is assumed and linear approximations are used. Excitation by a pump wave of ordinaryExpand
