A novel code for numerical 3-D MHD studies of CME expansion
Abstract. A recent third-order, essentially non-oscillatory central scheme to advance the equations of single-fluid magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) in time has been implemented into a new numerical code.


Ultra high energy cosmic rays: the theoretical challenge
Energetic particle spectra in finite shocks: the earth's bow shock
Ipavich et al. have reported fast particle spectra near the Earth's bow shock that are exponentials in the quantity energy per charge, E/Q. It is shown that this is expected if the fast particles
Electron heat flux constraints in the solar wind
Enhanced fluctuations from electromagnetic heat flux instabilities may, through wave-particle scattering, constrain the electron heat flux which flows parallel to the background magnetic field in the
Ultrahigh Energy Neutrals from Extreme Magnetic Flares
It is shown that bulk acceleration during reconnection of extremely strong magnetic fields near compact objects can accelerate ions to Lorentz factors of $\sim 10^2 \sigma^{3/5}$ under general
Particle injection and acceleration at earth's bow shock - Comparison of upstream and downstream events
The injection and acceleration of thermal solar wind ions at the quasi-parallel earth's bow shock during radial interplanetary magnetic field conditions is investigated. Active Magnetospheric
Diffusive shock acceleration - comparison of a unified shock model to bow shock observations
A comparison is made between recent AMPTE/IRM observations of diffuse ions detected upstream of the earth's bow shock when the interplanetary magnetic field was nearly parallel to the solar wind
Cooling flows in clusters of galaxies
Cooling gas in the centre of many clusters of galaxies is compressed and pushed inward by the thermal pressure of the hot, uncooled outer gas. Gravity acts as a focusing agent until the gas has
Dynamics of Relativistic Reconnection
The dynamics of the steady state Sweet-Parker-type reconnection is analyzed in the relativistic regime when energy density in the inflowing region is dominated by the magnetic field. The structure of
A Statistical survey of Ions Observed Upstream of the Earth's Bow Shock'
The characteristics of 33 diffuse particle events in the energy range from ∼30 to ∼130 keV/Q observed upstream of the earth's bow shock have been determined. The measurements were made with the Ultra
Thermal Conduction in Clusters of Galaxies
We estimate the thermal conductivity of a weakly collisional magnetized plasma with chaotic magnetic field fluctuations. When the fluctuation spectrum extends over two or more decades in wavevector,
