By Gérard Belmont,Roland Grappin,Fabrice Mottez,Filippo Pantellini,Guy Pelletier

Collisionless Plasmas in Astrophysics examines the original homes of media with no collisions in plasma physics. specialists during this box, the authors current the 1st e-book to be aware of collisionless stipulations in plasmas, even if shut or to not thermal equilibrium. Filling a void in medical literature, Collisionless Plasmas in Astrophysics explains the chances of modeling such plasmas, utilizing a fluid or a kinetic framework. It additionally addresses universal misconceptions that even execs may possibly own, on phenomena resembling "collisionless (Landau) damping". considerable illustrations are given in either house physics and astrophysics.
