Notes. They are independent of the background plasma parameters. The free variables are ωce/ωpe, L/di, and mi/me = 25. The electrons and ions have normalized temperatures Θs = Ts/ (msc2) and they counterstream with velocities (given here in units of c) and associated Lorentz factors Γe. The sheet halfwidth in units of ion inertial lengths is L/di, while in units of the thermal Larmor radii (at current sheet center), it is L/rce.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
