Title: Relativistic Weibel instability

Abstract

The relativistic Weibel instability has received much attention because of its potential application to astrophysical problems. The purpose of this paper is to correct certain erroneous expressions in the author's early paper on the subject [P. H. Yoon, Phys. Fluids B 1, 1336 (1989)], to discuss further properties of the relativistic Weibel instability, and to compare with its nonrelativistic counterpart.
