Exploring the Ideal MHD Quasi-Modes of a Plasma Interface with a Thick Nonuniform Transition View all abstracts by submitter

Nonuniform plasma across an imposed magnetic field, such as those present in the solar atmosphere, can support collective Alfvénic oscillations with a characteristic damping time. The damped transverse oscillations of coronal loops are an example of this process. In ideal magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), these transient collective motions are associated with quasi-modes resonant in the Alfvén continuum. Quasi-modes live in a non-principal Riemann sheet of the dispersion relation, and so they are not true ideal MHD eigenmodes. The present study considers the illustrative case of incompressible surface MHD waves propagating on a nonuniform interface between two uniform plasmas with a straight magnetic field parallel to the interface. It is explored how the ideal quasi-modes of this configuration change when the width of the nonuniform transition increases. It is found that interfaces with wide enough transitions are not able to support truly collective oscillations. A quasi-mode that can be related with a resonantly damped surface MHD wave can only be found in interfaces with sufficiently thin transitions.
