 Hydromagnetic KelvinHeimholtz Instability in the Presence of Suspended Particles and Finite Larmor Radius Effect    Abstract
 A linear analysis o f the com bined influence of a finite ion Larmor radius and suspended particles on K elvinH elm holtz instability in the presence of a uniform magnetic field is carried out. The magnetic field is assumed to be uniform and transverse to the direction of streaming. The medium is assumed to be incompressible. Certain simplifying assumptions are made for the m otion of the suspended particles. A dispersion relation for such a medium has been obtained using appropriate boundary conditions. The stabilizing effect of a finite Larmor radius has been reasserted in the absence of the suspended particles. A stability criterion for the medium is derived, which is found to be independent o f the presence of the suspended particles. Similarly a condition of instability of the system is also derived. Num erical analysis is presented in a few limiting cases of interest. Furthermore, growth rates of unstable modes of the configuration with increasing relaxation fre quency of the particles and finite Larmor radius have been evaluated analytically. It is shown that the finite Larmor radius in the presence o f the suspended particles destabilizes a certain wave number band which is stable otherwise. Implications of the suspended particles on the growth rate of unstable modes are discussed in the limit of vanishing ion Larmor radius.
