Temperature Anisotropy in a Shocked Plasma: Mirror-Mode Instabilities in the Heliosheath
We show that temperature anisotropies induced at a shock can account for interplanetary and planetary bow shock observations. Shocked plasma with enhanced plasma beta is preferentially unstable to the mirror mode instability downstream of a quasi-perpendicular shock and to the firehose instability downstream of a quasi-parallel shock, consistent with magnetic fluctuations observed downstream of a large variety of shocks. Our theoretical analysis of the solar wind termination shock suggests thatdoi:10.1086/516568 fatcat:n5c7r23ltjfm3bdpofmxax3gv4
