Burton D Fried(
Book
)
15 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Plasma Dispersion Function: The Hilbert Transform of the Gaussian focuses on the reactions, transformations, and calculations involved in plasma dispersion function. The book first offers information on the properties of Z, including symmetry properties, values for special arguments, power series, asymptotic expansion, and differential equation characterization. The text then ponders on the applications to plasma physics. Numerical calculations on the function of Z are presented. The manuscript takes a look at table generation and accuracy wherein various methods are proposed in computin

On the detection of ion oscillations in a mercury discharge by
Burton D Fried(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The possibility of using a low pressure mercury discharge to detect ion plasma oscillations was examined. It was found that 1) collisions will not interfere with the phenomenon; 2) the current which maintains the discharge will cause the waves to grow (through the twostream instability) in a time comparable with or less than the oscillation period. Aside from complications caused by the fact that the maximum growth occurs at rather short wavelengths, detection of these waves appears quite feasible. (Author)

High Altitude Plasma Effects(
Book
)
2 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The principal results of the program to simulate ionospheric modification field experiments in the QUIPS device are reviewed. The main conclusions are: By linear mode conversion electromagnetic waves (EMW) propagating in the inhomogeneous laboratory plasma produced very intense electron plasma waves (EPW) (orders of magnitude above the EMW) propagating along the density gradient. Unanticipated by conventional theory, the linearly converted EPW was the lowest threshold pump of the parametric instability. In square wave operation, at the turnoff and turnon of the EMW pump, the ponderomotive force due to the electrostatic field of the linearly converted EPW produced a large pulse of density perturbation, proportional to incident power (i.e., without threshold), which propagated away from the plane of reflection of the EMW

Double Resonance Production of Ionospheric Irregularities(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A central question is the anomalously broad spectral width of the plasma line observed during ionospheric RF heating at Arecibo. The authors first suggested this is due to lower hybrid parametric instabilities but rejected it due to its high power threshold. They developed a numerical code which traces propagation and amplification of electron waves generated by ion acoustic parametric instability in a vertically stratified ionosphere. It is found that the plasma line observed by backscatter has a 'core' of locally generated and detected waves, and broad 'wings' of remotely generated high frequency waves. The wings are highly aspect and frequency sensitive. The authors also suggest that an intense RF pump should trap plasma waves in its field maxima, which may account for the fading observed in Boulder RF heating experiments. (Author)

On the mechanism for instability of transverse plasma waves(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1959 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A physical mechanism is presented for the growth of transverse plasma waves due to an anisotropic velocity distribution. It is shown that in absence of an external magnetic field, curvature of particle trajectories in the fluctuation magnetic field accounts quantitatively for the growth rate calculated from the Boltzmann equation.

Mode Coupling and Wave Particle Interactions for Unstable Ion Acoustic Waves(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A theory for the spatial development of linearly unstable, coupled waves is presented in which both quasilinear and mode coupling effects are treated in a selfconsistent manner. Steady state excitation of two waves (with frequencies (omega sub 1), (omega sub 2)) is assumed at the boundary x = 0, the plasma being homogeneous in the y and z directions. Coupled equations are derived for the x dependence of the amplitudes of the primary waves ((omega sub 1), (omega sub 2)) and the secondary waves, n(omega sub 1 + m(omega sub 2) (n and m being integers), correct through terms of second order in the wave amplitude, but without the usual approximation of small growth rates. This general formalism is the applied to the case of coupled ion acoustic waves driven unstable by an ion beam streaming in the direction of the x axis. (Author)

Turbulent Resistivity, Diffusion and Heating(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Current flow with density j> nec(s) (c sub s) identically = square root(T sub e/m sub i) = ion acoustic velocity) should encounter resistance due to ion acoustic turbulence when (T sub e)>> (T sub i). This has been observed in experiments with a streaming cesium plasma (B = 0), in which electron current, potential rise due to turbulent resistivity, spectrum of unstable ion acoustic waves, and associated electron heating were all measured directly. Kinetic theory calculations for an expanding, unstable plasma, give results in agreement with experiment. (Author)

The kinetic equation for an unstable plasma in parallel electric and magnetic fields(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The response of a homogeneous plasma, in a strong uniform magnetic field, to the sudden application of a strong, uniform electric field is studied in a selfconsistent formulation which treats the coupled equations for the oneparticle and twoparticle distribution functions resulting from neglect of threeparticle correlations. The electric field is assumed to be large compared to that which produced a 'runaway current', so that particlewave interactions should dominate. Only the dominant contributions to the diffusion in velocity space, arising from the fastest growing waves, are retained. (Author)

TRANSVERSE PLASMA WAVE ECHOS(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Transverse plasma echos can arise from two spatially separated, steadystate excitations, a transverse one at frequency omega 1 and a longitudinal one at frequency omega 2. Our theoretical results for the location, polarization, and other characteristics of these echos, which have frequency omega 1 plus or minus omega 2, take into account collective effects, as found from the Vlasov equation. The variety of phenomena involved is much greater than in the case of two longitudinal excitations. (Author)

AN ONLINE COMPUTING CENTER FOR SCIENTIFIC PROBLERS(
)
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An online digital system allowing an unusually direct coupling between the user (physicist, mathematician, engineer) and the computer is described. This system, which has been successfully operated during the past six months, was designed principally to provide assistance for problems whose structure is partially unknown (and frequently surprising). These typically require the development of new methods of ATTACK, AND HENCE AN AMOUNT OF PROGRAM EXPERIMENTATION NOT FEASIBLE WITH CLASSICAL COMPUTER CENTER ORGANIZATIONS. With the system described here, the interaction between user and computer is close enough to permit effective use of a scientist's intuition and of his detailed understanding of techniques and procedures, machine representations of those tools he considers essential to his area, and then use these, online, to study or solve problems of interest
