Hall diffusion and the magnetorotational instability in protoplanetary discs
The destabilizing effect of Hall diffusion in a weakly ionized Keplerian disc allows the magnetorotational instability (MRI) to occur for much lower ionization levels than would otherwise be possible. However, simulations incorporating Hall and Ohm diffusion give the impression that the consequences of this for the non-linear saturated state are not as significant as suggested by the linear instability. Close inspection reveals that this is not actually the case as the simulations have not yet...[Show more]
