Abstract

The stability of the solar wind against the whistler mode is analyzed. It is shown that the solar wind can become unstable owing to this mode after a distance of 100 R from the sun. The minimum value of the relative velocity (Ur) between ∝-particles and protons for the excitation of this instability is the proton thermal velocity αi. The maximum growth rate at 200 R occurs for the values of the parameters i = 0·3,(T┤/T)i = 0·3 and Uri = 0·5.
