Kelvin-Helmholtz instability in a weakly ionized layer

Preprint English OPEN
Shadmehri, Mohsen; Downes, Turlough P.; (2007)

We study the linear theory of Kelvin-Helmholtz instability in a layer of ions and neutrals with finite thickness. In the short wavelength limit the thickness of the layer has a negligible effect on the growing modes. However, perturbations with wavelength comparable to ... View more
