On the modulational stability of magnetic structures in electron drift turbulence

The generation of large-scale magnetic fields in magnetic electron drift mode turbulence is investigated. In particular, the mechanism of modulational instability caused by three-wave interactions is elucidated and the explicit increment is calculated. Also, a stability criterion similar to the known Lighthill criterion is found.
