Magnetically
Driven RayleighTaylor Instability To describe the acceleration of this fluid, incompressible Euler equations and Maxwell's electromagnetic equations are used, supplemented by Ohm's law. Nondimensionalization shows that the displacement current term is small. The governing equations are the usual incompressible fluid equations coupled to diffusion equations for the magnetic flux vector. We consider evolution in a single Fourier mode and hence the problem is 1dimensional. Numerical computation will be done with CrankNicholson method to solve the momentum and magnetic diffusion equations and to use an ODE boundaryvalue problem solver to calculate the fluid pressure.
