Abstract

Parametric instabilities of circularly polarized Alfvén waves were discussed. One-dimensional full particle simulation and bicoherence analysis were performed. Results showed that successive decay between the parallel propagating Langmuir-like wave and Alfvén-like wave can generate a continuum of low frequency electromagnetic waves.
