On the stability of an accretion disc containing a toroidal magnetic field: The effect of resistivity

Abstract:

We extend a previous study of the global stability of a stratified differentially rotating disc containing a toroidal magnetic field to include the effect of a non-zero resistivity η. We consider the situation when the disc is stable to convection in the absence of the magnetic field. The most robust buoyancy driven unstable modes, which occur when the field is strong enough, have low azimuthal mode number m. They grow exponentially, apparently belonging to a discrete spectrum. They exist for...
