An, X., C. Yue, J. Bortnik, V. Decyk, W. Li, R. M. Thorne (2017), On the parameter dependence of the whistler anisotropy instability, J. Geophy. Res. Space Physics, 122, DOI:10.1002/2017JA023895
The evolution of the whistler anisotropy instability relevant to whistler-mode chorus waves in the Earth’s inner magnetosphere was studied using kinetic simulations with mdpic2 and compared with satellite observations.
