Detailed descriptionLocal numerical simulations of quasiperpendicular shocks in collisionless plasmas.

Projects 
sh3 3D hybrid simulation of a perpendicular shock with M_A=3.1, beta_p=0.2. Available products: B, B_{x}, B_{y}, B_{z}, Density, U, U_{x}, U_{y}, U_{z} 

CoordinatesX axis is parallel to the shock normal, Y axis is aligned with the upstream magnetic field. 
Initial conditionsThe shock is launched by reflection off the wall at t=10/Omega_p. Only a part of the simulation box is shown, the data are transformed to the shock rest frame. Upstream beta_p=0.2, M_A=3.1; upstream beta_e=0.01. 
ParametersGrid: N_x = N_y = N_z = 128 (only a part of the simulation box is used); Time step: dt=0.005/Omega_p. Cell size: dx=0.1 d_p, dy=dz=0.2 d_p
