FIG. 1.

(Color online) Time history of the wave mode amplitude for Run2 propagating in the y direction in the yz plane through the X-line. The vertical axis represents the mode number in the left axis and the wave number in the right axis.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

(Color online) Electron number density for Run2 in the yz plane through the X-line at (a) tω ci  = 6.0, (b) tω ci  = 14.0, and (c) tω ci  = 18.0. Arrows show the electron flow vector in the plane.

FIG. 3.

(Color online) 3D view of the electron number density (contours) and the magnetic field lines for Run2 at tω ci  = 18.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

(Color online) Phase space density of the electrons in the space at tω ci  = 18 (a) for Run1 and (b) for Run2. The z′ axis crosses the X-line at z′ = 0 and the profile is averaged over the y′ direction.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

Time evolution of the distribution function of the electrons captured at the inflow edge of the electron diffusion region (a) for Run1 and (b) for Run2, where and t′ is the time measured from the moment when the electrons enter the electron diffusion region. The electrons diverted from the vicinity of the X-line are removed from the distribution function.

FIG. 6.

Schematic diagram describing the change in the electron distribution function in the electron diffusion region from t = 0 (when the electrons enter the electron diffusion region) till t = τ tr (where τ tr is the averaged transit time) for (a) 2D case and (b) 3D case.

Image of FIG. 7.
FIG. 7.

profile along the z′ axis through the X-line at tω ci  = 18 (a) for Run1 and (b) for Run2. The profile is averaged over the y′ direction. The dashed curve represents the modified E × B drift velocity provided in Eq. (4) in Fujimoto.15
