Computer simulations of the fluid-like modified two-stream instability, driven by relative electron-ion drifts across a magnetic field, show strong anomalous plasma heating. The electron and ion heating rates are comparable and result in ion thermal speeds which approach the relative speed within a few ion plasma periods. Author
