A note on the structure and kinematics of Harris current sheets

Treumann, R. A., and W. Baumjohann (2013), A note on the structure and kinematics of Harris current sheets, arXiv:[physics.space-ph], 5 pages, no figures.

Abstract
The flat Harris current sheet model has become a powerful initial equilibrium in theory and simulation of magnetic reconnection in the magnetotail, at the magnetopause and also in multiple current sheet models of the heliosheath and astrophysics, where it is believed that such structures may become responsible for generation of turbulence and also high energy particles. Here we investigate the philosophy behind the Harris sheet in view of the physical conditions. The kinematic treatment in this note takes care of the different dynamics of ions and electrons.
