FIG. 2.

(Color online) (a) Compression ratio r, (b) reconnection electric field Er /Er 0, (c) outflow speed vo /, and (d) outflow magnetic field Bo /Bi as function of δ = d/L for 5 values of β in the inflow region and γ = 5/3. The reconnection rate Er and the outflow speed vo are normalized to their values in the limit of small δ, whereas Bo is normalized to the inflow magnetic field Bi . The dashed and dash-dotted black lines represent validity limits discussed in the text.

FIG. 3.

(Color online) (a) Compression ratio r/r 0, (b) reconnection electric field Er /Er 0, (c) outflow speed vo /, and (d) outflow magnetic field Bo /Bi as function of δ and several values of γ with β = 0.2. The values of r and Er are normalized to their values for small δ, while Bo is normalized to the inflow magnetic field Bi .
