In this section:
The three-dimensional propagating mode solutions of the linearized MHD equations in symmetric or asymmetric slab waveguides for sausage and kink modes can be found in this section.
The visualisations are based on the analytical solutions of propagating waves in slab waveguides obtained by Roberts (1981) (symmetric magnetic slab) and Allcock and Erdélyi (2017) (asymmetric magnetic slab).
For the symmetric slab the following parameters are used:
For the asymmetric slab the following parameters are used:
The parameters in this section are defined as:
