Magnetohydrodynamics of Wind-Cloud Interactions: Filament Formation in the Interstellar Medium

Banda-Barragan, Wladimir Eduardo

Description

Filaments are ubiquitous in the interstellar medium, yet their formation, internal structure, magnetic properties, and longevity have not been analysed in detail. In this thesis I report the results from a comprehensive numerical study that investigates the characteristics, formation, dynamics, and global evolution of filamentary structures arising from (magneto)hydrodynamic interactions between supersonic winds and interstellar clouds. Here I improve on...[Show more]
