ABSTRACT

Effects of horizontal and vertical magnetic field components on the Rayleigh-Taylor instability of stratified incompressible plasmas layer of variable density through Darcy porous medium are studied. The basic magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) set of equations has been constructed and linearized. Then the linear normalized growth rate is obtained analytically as a function of the physical parameters of the system considered. Numerical calculations have been performed to see the effects of various parameters on the normalized growth rate of Rayleigh-Taylor instability.(For more information,please refer to the PDF.)
