Star formation through thermal instability of radiative plasma with finite electron inertia and finite Larmor radius corrections
Abstract
I have studied the effects of finite electron inertia, finite ion Larmor radius (FLR) corrections, and radiative heatloss function on the thermal instability of an infinite homogeneous, viscous plasma incorporating the effect of thermal conductivity for star formation in interstellar medium (ISM). A general dispersion relation is derived using the normal mode analysis method with the help of relevant linearized perturbation equations of the problem. The wave propagation is discussed for longitudinal and transverse directions to the external magnetic field and the conditions of modified thermal instabilities and stabilities are discussed in different cases. We find that the thermal instability criterion is get modified into radiative instability criterion by inclusion of radiative heatloss functions with thermal conductivity. The viscosity of medium removes the effect of FLR corrections from the condition of radiative instability. Numerical calculation shows stabilizing effect of heatloss function, viscosity and FLR corrections, and destabilizing effect of finite electron inertia on the thermal instability. Results carried out in this paper shows that stars are formed in interstellar medium mainly due to thermal instability.

The effect of finite Larmor radius corrections on Jeans instability of quantum plasma
The influence of finite Larmor radius (FLR) effects on the Jeans instability of infinitely conducting homogeneous quantum plasma is investigated. The quantum magnetohydrodynamic (QMHD) model is used to formulate the problem. The contribution of FLR is incorporated to the QMHD set of equations in the present analysis. The general dispersion relation is obtained analytically using the normal mode analysis technique which is modified due to the contribution of FLR corrections. From general dispersion relation, the condition of instability is obtained and it is found that Jeans condition is modified due to quantum effect. The general dispersion relation is reduced formore » 
Jeans instability of magnetized quantum plasma: Effect of viscosity, rotation and finite Larmor radius corrections
The Jeans instability of selfgravitating quantum plasma is examined considering the effects of viscosity, finite Larmor radius (FLR) corrections and rotation. The analysis is done by normal mode analysis theory with the help of relevant linearized perturbation equations of the problem. The general dispersion relation is obtained using the quantum magneto hydrodynamic model. The modified condition of Jeans instability is obtained and the numerical calculations have been performed to show the effects of various parameters on the growth rate of Jeans instability. 
Thermal instability of a compressible finite Larmor radius, Hall plasma in porous medium
The thermal instability of a compressible plasma in porous medium is considered in the presence of a uniform horizontal magnetic field to include the Hall current and finite Larmor radius effects. The Hall current and finite Larmor radius (FLR), individually, have destabilizing and stabilizing effects, respectively, on the system. In the simultaneous presence of both, there is a competition between the destabilizing role of Hall current and stabilizing role of FLR and eachHall current and FLRsucceeds in stabilizing a certain wavenumber range. In the absence of magnetic field (and hence absence of Hall current and FLR), the destabilizing effect ofmore »
