Current-sheet formation near a hyperbolic magnetic neutral line in the presence of a plasma flow with a uniform shear-strain rate: An exact solution
Abbreviated Journal Title
Phys. Lett. A
An exact solution for the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations for a time-dependent, two-dimensional flow of an incompressible plasma with a uniform shear-strain rate in hyperbolic magnetic field is given. This solution predicts that the presence of a shear-strain in the plasma-flow tends to impede the current-sheet formation near the hyperbolic magnetic neutral line. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
