Short summary
Here we present a scenario that the decay of a field-aligned Alfvén wave can occur simultaneously at various angles to the mean magnetic field, generating a number of second-order fluctuations or waves (after the pump wave as the first-order fluctuation). We refer to the simultaneous decay as multi-channel couplings following the notion in scattering theory. Our goal is to study the hypothesis of the multi-channel coupling by running a three-dimensional hybrid plasma simulation.
