The Linear Spectrum of Twisted Magnetic Ux Tubes in Viscous Mhd

(Received) In the present paper we investigate the innuence of tensorial viscosity on the linear MHD spectrum for isolated twisted magnetic ux tubes surrounded by vacuum. The magnetic ux tubes are modelled as 1D cylindricalplasma columns. Viscosity is described by its classical tensorial form with compressive and shear viscosity. The equilibrium parameters… CONTINUE READING
