The results of the numerical investigation of a layered structure formation in systems of particles with anisotropic pair interaction are presented. A simulation was carried out for extended homogeneous structures consisting of one or several layers of interacting particles over a wide range of parameters which correspond to the conditions usually observed in laboratory dusty plasma experiments. For the first time a detailed analysis of the development of various instabilities in such systems has been undertaken.
PACS: 52.27.Lw – Dusty or complex plasmas; plasma crystals / 52.27.Gr – Strongly-coupled plasmas / 52.35.Qz – Microinstabilities (ion-acoustic, two-stream, loss-cone, beam-plasma, drift, ion- or electron-cyclotron, etc.)
