  author={Pralay Kumar Karmakar and Mitali Gohain},
A linear stability analysis of a simple polytropic model for the solar wind dynamics within the framework of a magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium configuration is theoretically proposed. The simplistic analysis is based on the model developed based on the data available from the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) spacecraft mission. A unique form of dispersion relation is derived by coupling the adiabatic and polytropic processes in the limit of ideal gas approximation for the solar wind gas in… CONTINUE READING
