A stratified plasma stream of infinite conductivity is incident on the magnetic field of a system of parallel line currents. The magnetic field is confined to a hollow within the stream and the plasma particles are assumed to be specularly reflected at the hollow surface, a boundary condition which also serves as the hypersonic shockwave approximation. The method of solution is illustrated by considering the case of a stream comprising a number of uniform layers. In particular the case of a single line current only partially enveloped by a uniform stream and the case of a two-layered stream past a line dipole are considered. Author
