Linear waves in relativistic anisotropic magnetohydrodynamics Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Abstract Linear waves are investigated in the framework of the relativistic anisotropic magnetohydrodynamics in a fully invariant formulation. Dispersion relations are derived for the relativistic analog of slow, intermediate, and fast waves in a plasma with an anisotropic stress tensor. Relativistic Chew-Goldberger-Low dispersion relations are obtained also.
