Abstract
We discuss possible observational consequences resulting from the propagation of transverse magneto-electron waves in the interstellar medium. We briefly describe a magnetohydrodynamic model for the cyclotron waves with emphasis on their analogy with hydrodynamic inertial waves. It is shown that the cyclotron waves are heavily damped in the interstellar medium and, therefore, cannot affect the gas dynamics of starforming molecular clouds. We developed an analytical model of the hélicoïdal magneto-electron waves based on the electromagnetic induction equation for the magnetic flux density driven by the Hall and Ohmic components of the electric field generated by flows of thermal electrons. It is established that the helicons can propagate in the interstellar medium without any noticeable attenuation. The presented numerical estimates for the group velocity of the intercloud helicons suggest that spiral circularly polarized magneto-electron waves of this type can be responsible for the broadening of molecular lines detected from dark interstellar clouds. ©2001 MAIK "Nauka/Interperiodica ".
