  • Indeterminacy and instability in Petschek reconnection

    Forbes, Terry G.; Priest, Eric R.; Seaton, Daniel B.; Litvinenko, Yuri E. (AIP, 2013)
    We explain two puzzling aspects of Petschek's model for fast reconnection. One is its failure to occur in plasma simulations with uniform resistivity. The other is its inability to provide anything more than an upper limit ...
  • The influence of a mean magnetic field on three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic turbulence

    Oughton, Sean; Priest, Eric R.; Matthaeus, William H. (Cambridge University Press, 1994)
    Building on results from two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence (Shebalin, Matthaeus & Montgomery 1983), the development of anisotropic states from initially isotropic ones is investigated numerically for ...
