Nonlinear evolution of Alfvén waves and RDs-hybrid simulations
- Conference date: 5-9 Oct 1998
- Location: Nantucket, Massachusetts (USA)
We review our use of hybrid simulations in the study nonlinear Alfvén waves. The simulations treat ions as particles and electrons as a fluid. We address how wave nonlinearity and ion kinetics can influence the polarization, compressional component, and imbedded rotational discontinuities seen in association with Alfvénic fluctuations in the solar wind.
