Classical kinetic solar wind theories reveal that the solar wind electron distribution function has a delicate influence on the acceleration of the coronal solar wind and its asymptotic velocity. In collisionless kinetics this results from the fact that no hyperbolic electrons with sunward velocities can be expected above the coronal exobase. This problem… CONTINUE READING
