Abstract

The Parker problem in Hall magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is considered. Poloidal shear superposed on the toroidal ion flow associated with the Hall effect is incorporated. This is found to lead to a triple deck structure for the Parker problem in Hall MHD, with the magnetic field falling off in the intermediate Hall-resistive region more steeply (like 1/x(3)) than that (like 1/x) in the outer ideal MHD region.
