Convective and Rotational Stability of a Dilute Plasma

Abstract:

The stability of a dilute plasma to local convective and rotational disturbances is examined. A subthermal magnetic field and finite thermal conductivity along the field lines are included in the analysis. Stability criteria similar in form to the classical H{\o}iland inequalities are found, but with angular velocity gradients replacing angular momentum gradients, and temperature gradients replacing entropy gradients. These criteria are indifferent to the properties of the magnetic field and ...
