THREE-DIMENSIONAL RELATIVISTIC MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC SIMULATIONS OF CURRENT-DRIVEN INSTABILITY. I. INSTABILITY OF A STATIC COLUMN
We have investigated the development of current-driven (CD) kink instability through three-dimensional relativistic magnetohydrodynamic simulations. A static force-free equilibrium helical magneticExpand

Particle Acceleration in Relativistic Jets due to Weibel Instability
Shock acceleration is a ubiquitous phenomenon in astrophysical plasmas. Plasma waves and their associated instabilities (e.g., the Buneman instability, two-streaming instability, and the WeibelExpand

THREE-DIMENSIONAL RELATIVISTIC MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC SIMULATIONS OF CURRENT-DRIVEN INSTABILITY. II. RELAXATION OF PULSAR WIND NEBULA
We have investigated the relaxation of a hydrostatic hot plasma column containing toroidal magnetic field by the current-driven (CD) kink instability as a model of pulsar wind nebulae. In ourExpand

A Magnetohydrodynamic Boost for Relativistic Jets
We have performed relativistic magnetohydrodynamic simulations of the hydrodynamic boosting mechanism for relativistic jets explored by Aloy & Rezzolla (2006) using the RAISHIN code. SimulationExpand

Weibel instability and associated strong fields in a fully 3D simulation of a relativistic shock
Plasma instabilities (e.g., Buneman, Weibel and other two-stream instabilities) excited in collisionless shocks are responsible for particle (electron, positron, and ion) acceleration. Using a newExpand

A Two-dimensional Simulation of a Relativistic Magnetized Jet
We have performed a magnetohydrodynamic simulation of a relativistic jet in slab geometry. The simulation code employs a simplified total variation diminishing method. We compare the weakly andExpand

Visualization and criticality of magnetotail field topology in a three-dimensional particle simulation
We present the temporal evolution of magnetic field topology in the magnetotail with a southward IMF in order to identify the magnetic reconnection. The magnetic field topology is uniquely determinedExpand

Recollimation Shocks in Magnetized Relativistic Jets
We have performed two-dimensional special-relativistic magnetohydrodynamic simulations of non-equilibrium over-pressured relativistic jets in cylindrical geometry. Multiple stationary recollimationExpand

Three-dimensional Relativistic Magnetohydrodynamic Simulations of Magnetized Spine-Sheath Relativistic Jets
Numerical simulations of weakly and strongly magnetized relativistic jets embedded in a weakly magnetized and strongly magnetized stationary or weakly relativistic (v = c/2) sheath have beenExpand
