14.For example, we have tried to use the so-called free-flow boundary conditions: The steady-state solution exists and is reached within several Alfvén times. However, the solution in the bulk of the main layer strongly depends on the position of both the upstream and downstream boundaries, which is physically not acceptable.
15.This presumably occurs at some infinitesimally short distance from the midplane, where Since one considers the limit , and hence this region shrinks to zero, and one should not be concerned too much about it in our simulation.
