Abstract

It is shown that the parallel electron velocity shear can destabilize low-frequency (in comparison with the electron gyrofrequency) electrostatic waves in a magnetized plasma. A new dispersion relation is derived and solved for the parameters relevant for laboratory experiments of velocity shear instabilities in a magnetized plasma.
