    Abstract

    A theory of spiral structure formation has been formulated to show that spiral structures are rather basic entities in magnetized rotating plasmas subjected to various types of instabilities such as collisional drift wave instability, flute mode instability due to centrifugal force, and Kelvin-Helmhotz instability. The characteristic features of spiral structures observed experimentally in electron cyclotron resonance plasmas are reproduced by our theory.
