Complex and Dusty Plasmas: From Laboratory to Space

Complex and Dusty Plasmas: From Laboratory to Space

1st Edition

Vladimir E. Fortov, Gregor E. Morfill
October 15, 2019

Dusty or complex plasmas are plasmas containing solid or liquid charged particles referred to as dust. Naturally occurring in space, they are present in planetary rings and comet tails, as well as clouds found in the vicinity of artificial satellites and space stations. On a more earthly level,...

Theory of Photon Acceleration

1st Edition

J.T Mendonca
September 11, 2019

Photo acceleration has dominated the theoretical plasma physics area in recent years and has found application in all subjects where waves in continuous media are studied - plasma physics, astrophysics, and optics. This theory will provide a modern understanding of photon interaction with matter,...

Aspects of Anomalous Transport in Plasmas

Aspects of Anomalous Transport in Plasmas

1st Edition

Radu Balescu
June 19, 2019

Anomalous transport is a ubiquitous phenomenon in astrophysical, geophysical and laboratory plasmas; and is a key topic in controlled nuclear fusion research. Despite its fundamental importance and ongoing research interest, a full understanding of anomalous transport in plasmas is still incomplete...
