Abstract

A shear flow instability in a nonuniform partially ionized magnetoplasma has been investigated and the angular momentum transport of charged particles caused by drift waves has been estimated. The angular momentum transport of the electrons and ions is not equal because the system is not conservative. The present investigation should help to understand the origin of fluctuations and associated parallel momentum transport of charged particles in nonuniform laboratory and astrophysical plasmas with sheared ion flow.
