Abstract

It is shown by numerical simulation using a hybrid code that comparison of the nonlinear steepening rate, calculated from fluid theory, with the linear collisionless damping rate, defines reasonably well the parameters from which fast and slow MHD waves should steepen. The results indicate that, whereas fast modes should ordinarly steepen, steepened slow waves should occur rarely in the solar wind near 1 AU.
