Large-scale energy budget of impulsive magnetic reconnection: Theory and simulation
We evaluate the large-scale energy budget of magnetic reconnection utilizing an analytical time-dependent impulsive reconnection model and a numerical 2-D MHD simulation. With the generalization to compressible plasma, we ...
Global kinetic hybrid simulation for radially expanding solar wind
We present the results of a 1-D global kinetic simulation of the solar wind in spherical coordinates without a magnetic field in the region from the Sun to the Earth’s orbit. Protons are considered as particles while ...
