On the drift magnetosonic waves in anisotropic low beta plasmas
Abstract
A generalized dispersion relation of obliquely propagating drift magnetosonic waves is derived by using the gyrokinetic theory for anisotropic low beta plasmas. The stability analysis applicable to a wide range of plasma parameters is performed to understand the stabilization mechanism of the drift magnetosonic instability and the estimation of the growth rate is also presented. It is noted that the growth rate of the drift instability enhances for small anisotropy (A{sub e,i} = T{sub ⊥e,i}/T{sub ∥e,i} < 1) whereas it is suppressed for large anisotropy (A{sub e,i} > 1)

Theory for resonant ion acceleration by nonlinear magnetosonic fast and slow waves in finite beta plasmas
A Kortewegde Vries equation that is applicable to both the nonlinear magnetosonic fast and slow waves is derived from a twofluid model with finite ion and electron pressures. As in the cold plasma theory, the fast wave has a critical angle theta/sub c/. For propagation angles greater than theta/sub c/ (quasiperpendicular propagation), the fast wave has a positive soliton, whereas for angles smaller than theta/sub c/, it has a negative soliton. Finite ..beta.. effects decrease the value of theta/sub c/. The slow wave has a positive soliton for all angles of propagation. The magnitude of resonant ion acceleration (the v/submore » 
Effects of positron concentration, ion temperature, and plasma {beta} value on linear and nonlinear twodimensional magnetosonic waves in electronpositronion plasmas
Magnetosonic waves are intensively studied due to their importance in space plasmas and also in fusion plasmas where they are used in particle acceleration and heating experiments. This work considers magnetosonic waves propagating obliquely at an angle {theta} to an external magnetic field in an electronpositronion plasma, using the effective onefluid magnetohydrodynamic model. Two separate modes (fast and slow) for the waves are discussed in the linear approximation, and the KadomstevPetviashvilli soliton equation is derived by using reductive perturbation scheme for these modes in the nonlinear regime. It is observed that for both the modes the angle {theta}, positron concentration,more »
