Physics of Plasmas
The linear stability of a Harris current sheet is examined using the Vlasov description for both ions and electrons. Orbit integrals are treated numerically using the exact particle orbits and including the global structure of the perturbation inside the integral. Both electromagnetic and electrostatic contributions to the field perturbation are retained and the eigenvalue problem for the system of integro-differential equations is solved using a Hermite expansion of the eigenfunction.
