Magnetic Rayleigh-Taylor Instability at a Contact Discontinuity With Oblique Magnetic Field View all abstracts by submitter

Istvan Ballai   Submitted: 2019-12-03 04:03

In the present work we investigate the nature of the magnetic Rayleigh-Taylor instability at a density interface permeated by an oblique, homogeneous magnetic field in an incompressible limit. Using the system of linearised ideal incompressible magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) equations we derive the dispersion relation for perturbations of the contact discontinuity by imposing the necessary continuity conditions at the interface. The imaginary part of the frequency describes the growth rate of waves due to instability. The growth rate of waves is studied by solving numerically the dispersion relation. The critical wavenumber at which waves become unstable, present for a parallel magnetic field, disappears, due to the inclination of the magnetic field and instead waves are shown to be unstable for all wavenumbers. Theoretical results are applied to diagnose the structure of the magnetic field in prominence threads. When applying our theoretical results to observed waves in prominence plumes, we obtain a wide range of field inclination angle; from 0.5 degrees up to 30 degrees. These results highlight the diagnostic possibility of our study.
