It is well established that the magnetically structured solar atmosphere supports the propagation of MHD waves along various kind of jets including also the solar wind. It is well-known as well that under some conditions, namely high enough jet speeds, the propagating MHD modes can become unstable against to the most common Kelvin–Helmholtz instability (KHI). In this article, we explore how the propagation and instability characteristics of running along a slow solar wind MHD modes are affected… 
Theory of Fluid Instabilities in Partially Ionized Plasmas: An Overview
Partially ionized plasmas (PIP) are essential constituents of many astrophysical environments, including the solar atmosphere, the interstellar medium, molecular clouds, accretion disks, planet
Some Properties of the Solar Wind Turbulence at 1 AU Statistically Examined in the Different Types of Solar Wind Plasma
A four‐plasma classification scheme is used to categorize the ACE solar wind data set into four types of plasma: (1) coronal‐hole‐origin plasma, (2) streamer‐belt‐origin plasma, (3)


Kelvin–Helmholtz Instability in a Cool Solar Jet in the Framework of Hall Magnetohydrodynamics: A Case Study
We investigate the conditions under which the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) modes in a cylindrical magnetic flux tube moving along its axis become unstable against the Kelvin–Helmholtz (KH) instability.
MHD waves and instabilities in flowing solar flux-tube plasmas in the framework of Hall magnetohydrodynamics
AbstractIt is well established now that the solar atmosphere, from photosphere to the corona and the solar wind is a highly structured medium. Satellite observations have confirmed the presence of
Fast surface waves in an ideal Hall-magnetohydrodynamic plasma slab
The propagation of fast sausage and kink magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) surface waves in an ideal magnetized plasma slab is studied taking into account the Hall term in the generalized Ohm’s law. It is
Influence of the Hall Term on KH Instability and Reconnection Inside KH Vortices
Abstract. The Kelvin-Helmholtz instability (KHI) in its nonlinear stage can develop small-scale filamentary field and current structures at the flank boundaries of the magnetosphere. It has been
Magnetohydrodynamic waves and their stability status in solar spicules
Aims. We investigate conditions under which magnetohydrodynamic waves propagating along spicules become unstable because of the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability. Methods. We employ the dispersion
On the nature of kink MHD waves in magnetic flux tubes
Context. Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves are often reported in the solar atmosphere and usually classified as slow, fast, or Alfven. The possibility that these waves have mixed properties is often
Traveling waves in Hall-magnetohydrodynamics and the ion-acoustic shock structure
Hall-magnetohydrodynamics (HMHD) is a mixed hyperbolic-parabolic partial differential equation that describes the dynamics of an ideal two fluid plasma with massless electrons. We study the only
Properties of Hall magnetohydrodynamic waves modified by electron inertia and finite Larmor radius effects
The linear wave equation (sixth order in space and time) and the corresponding dispersion relation is derived for Hall magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves including electron inertial and finite Larmor
On nonlinear waves in Hall–MHD plasma
Abstract Low-frequency magnetic field fluctuations are observed in space plasmas, e.g. as upstream waves at the Earth's bow shock. Such upstream waves can steepen into very large amplitude wave
Onset of the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability in partially ionized magnetic flux tubes
Context. Recent observations of solar prominences show the presence of turbulent flows that may be caused by Kelvin-Helmholtz instabilites (KHI). However, the observed flow velocities are below the
