Alfvén Mode - Azimuthal Wavenumber n=1,1 - Eigenmode


The following videos present different perspectives of 2 Alfvén waves with azimuthal wavenumber, n=1,1.Both Alfvén waves have azimuthal wavenumber, n=1.


  • x-axis (red arrow), y-axis (green arrow) and z-axis (blue arrow)

  • Red lines – magnetic field lines

  • Grey surface – slab boundaries

  • White arrows – velocity direction field
