Nonaxisymmetric linear instability of cylindrical magnetohydrodynamic Taylor-Couette flow.

Abstract

We consider the nonaxisymmetric modes of instability present in Taylor-Couette flow under the application of helical magnetic fields, mainly for magnetic Prandtl numbers close to the inductionless limit, and conduct a full examination of marginal stability in the resulting parameter space. We allow for the azimuthal magnetic field to be generated by a… (More)
