Abstract

We show that the strong magnetic flux can be generated during coalescence of magnetic islands in pair plasmas. It is also shown that the charge separation with a quadrupole-like structure is produced near the localized magnetic flux. There appear strong wave emissions with electromagnetic waves and Alfvén waves during the decay of the magnetic flux and the charge structure.
