We investigate inviscid instability in an electrically conducting fluid affected by a parallel magnetic field. The case of low magnetic Reynolds number in Poiseuille flow is considered. When the magnetic field is sufficiently strong, for a flow with low hydrodynamic Reynolds number, it is already known that the neutral disturbances are three-dimensional. Our investigation shows that at high hydrodynamic Reynolds number(inviscid flow), the effect of the strength of the magnetic field on the…

NEUTRAL STABILITY OF AN INCOMPRESSIBLE MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC HALF-JET AT LOW REYNOLDS NUMBER.

The effect of an applied magnetic field on the instability of a laminar, free boundary layer formed between two parallel streams of semi‐infinite extent has been studied. It is shown that the

This paper concerns linear instabilities of incompressible flow along a rotating pipe when the disturbances are inviscid. The inviscid spectrum comprises an infinite number of eigenmodes, and

TLDR
This paper presents the analysis of axisymmetric helical magnetorotational instability (HMRI) in the inviscid limit, which is relevant for astrophysical conditions and finds that the extension of self-sustained HMRI modes beyond the Rayleigh limit does not reach the astrophysically relevant Keplerian rotation profile.
