On the modulation stability of magnetic structures in electron drift turbulence
2007 (English)In: Physics of Plasmas, ISSN 1070-664X, Vol. 14, no 10, 102313-102317 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The generation of large-scale magnetic fields in magnetic electron drift mode turbulence is investigated. In particular, the mechanism of modulational instability caused by three-wave interactions is elucidated and the explicit increment is calculated. Also, a stability criterion similar to the known Lighthill criterion is found.
