The fully three-dimensional governing equations in the electron magnetohydrodynamic (EMHD) regime for a plasma with inhomogeneous density are obtained. These equations in the two-dimensional limit can be cast in terms of the evolution of two coupled scalar fields. The nonlinear simulations for...

Action-angle variables corresponding to singular (or improper) eigenmodes are rigorously formulated for the AlfvÃ©n and slow (or cusp) continuous spectra of ideal magnetohydrodynamics. The perturbation energy is then transformed into the normal form, namely, the eigenfrequency multiplied by...

The reversal mechanism of a dipole magnetic field generated by dynamo action in a rotating spherical shell is investigated by a three-dimensional nonlinear magnetohydrodynamic simulation as well as a linear stability analysis. The emphasis of the study is on understanding the relationship...

The physics of spheromak plasmas is addressed by time-dependent, three-dimensional, resistive magnetohydrodynamic simulations with the NIMROD code [C. R. Sovinec et al., J. Comput. Phys. 195, 355 (2004)]. Included in some detail are the formation of a spheromak driven electrostatically by a...

A self-excited hydromagnetic dynamo effect may take place in the lake of an impact melt with a volume on the order of a hundred cubic kilometers and a temperature of 2000-3000 K formed upon collision of a large meteorite (or asteroid) with a planet. The high temperature results in large electric...

Alpha, an important parameter in dynamo theory, is shown to be proportional to either the kinetic, current, magnetic, or velocity helicities of the fluctuating magnetic field and fluctuating velocity field. The particular helicity to which alpha is proportional depends on the assumptions used in...

- Ideal equilibria in noncooperative multicriteria games. Voorneveld, Mark; Grahn, Sofia; Dufwenberg, Martin // Mathematical Methods of Operations Research;2000, Vol. 52 Issue 1, p65
Abstract. Pareto equilibria in multicriteria games can be computed as the Nash equilibria of scalarized games, obtained by assigning weights to the separate criteria of a player. To analysts, these weights are usually unknown. This paper therefore proposes ideal equilibria, strategy profiles...

- Vector network equilibrium problems and nonlinear scalarization methods. Chen, G. Y.; Goh, C. J.; Yang, X. Q. // Mathematical Methods of Operations Research;1999, Vol. 49 Issue 2, p239
Abstract. The conventional equilibrium problem found in many economics and network models is based on a scalar cost, or a single objective. Recently, equilibrium problems based on a vector cost, or multicriteria, have received considerable attention. In this paper, we study a scalarization...

The equilibrium and stability properties of a planar gravitating plasma in the theory of ideal magnetohydrodynamic flows are investigated. The flow is taken to be barotropic. Variational principles for the steady state equations of aligned magnetic field and plasma flow are formulated. A simple...
