Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Magnetoacoustic waves in a structured medium can exist as hybrid waves, exhibiting the properties of both surface and body waves (Smith et al., 1997). Such hybrid waves may occur within a structured medium in which the parameters describing the physical properties of the medium are defined to be continuous functions. The dispersive behaviour of hybrid waves in a current sheet with this property is explored and compared to that in a slab model.
