Statistical distribution of discontinuity characteristics in the ﹩({\rm{\Delta }}{v}_{l},{\rm{\Delta }}{v}_{A}^{* })﹩ map: (a) current density magnitude, (b) discontinuity thickness, (c) electron anisotropy parameter Λe, (d) measure of residual magnetic energy ﹩{\rm{\Delta }}{v}_{A}^{* }-{\rm{\Delta }}{v}_{l}﹩, (e) nondiagonal pressure component ΔΠln/n, and (f) nondiagonal pressure component ΔΠln/nmp in velocity units.
