Alfvén Mode - Azimuthal Wavenumber \(n=1,1\) - Eigenmode


\(\mathbf{(r, c)}\) refers to the video in the r row (starting from the top) and c column (starting from the left). The coordinates can be seen in the bottom left corner (usually) and are color coded as follows: x-axis (red arrow), y-axis (green arrow) and z-axis (blue arrow). In all videos the magnetic stream lines inside the flux tube are red. The velocity field is depicted with white arrows. The following movies present different perspectives of 2 Alfvén waves with azimuthal wavenumber, \( n = 1,1\).Both Alfvén waves have azimuthal wavenumber, \( n = 1\).
