Abstract

This paper presents a derivation of the nonlinear equations governing the space–time evolution of magnetic electron drift waves in an inhomogeneous magnetoplasma. The equilibrium electron pressure gradient is maintained by the gradient of an external magnetic field. An oscillatory instability is shown to arise. The existence of magnetic electron drift vortices is discussed and the limitation on the vortex speed due to the external magnetic field is pointed out.
