Bending Waves on Current Sheets

  • G. Bertin (a1) (a2) and B. Coppi (a1) (a2)

Abstract

Current sheets are found to be subject to bending waves described by a dispersion relation indicating that these are, essentially, modified surface Alfvén waves. Applications to the observed magnetic polarity sectors in the solar wind and to other astrophysical environments, such as planetary magnetospheres, are suggested.
