Resistivity-independent dissipation of magnetohydrodynamic waves in an inhomogeneous plasma.

Abstract

The heating of high temperature plasmas by magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves is one of the most interesting and challenging problems of plasma physics especially when the energy is injected into the system at length scales much larger than the dissipative ones. It has been conjectured that in two-dimensional MHD systems the possibility exists of establishing… (More)
