Magnetorotational Instability in Weakly Ionised, Stratified Accretion Discs

Salmeron, Raquel; Wardle, Mark


We present a linear analysis of the vertical structure and growth of the magnetorotational instability in weakly ionised, stratified accretion discs. The method includes the effects of the magnetic coupling, the conductivity regime of the fluid and the strength of the magnetic field, which is initially vertical. The conductivity is treated as a tensor and assumed constant with height. The Hall effect causes the perturbations to grow faster and act over a much more extended section of the disc,...[Show more]
