Abstract: A one (space) dimensional Vlasov equation is used to model the solar wind (a collisionless plasma) as it moves past an applied magnetic field (an obstacle). The goal is to understand physically reasonable steady states for this situation. When the applied magnetic field is sufficiently small, appropriate states are constructed.
