Collisionless reconnection: Mechanism of self-ignition in thin current sheets

Treumann, R. A., R. Nakamura, and W. Baumjohann (2010), Collisionless reconnection: Mechanism of self-ignition in thin current sheets, arXiv:1004.3992, 8 printed journal pages, prepared for Annales Geophysicae.

Abstract
The spontaneous onset of magnetic reconnection in thin collisionless current sheets is shown to result from a thermal-anisotropy driven magnetic Weibel-mode, generating seed-magnetic field {\sf X}-points in the centre of the current layer.
