Modes localized to open magnetic field lines

Eliezer Hameiri

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A constructive mathematical proof is given for the existence of modes localized to a single magnetic field line, which give rise to ballooning modes and to the Alfvén continuous spectrum. The unity of these two classes of modes is emphasized.
