Plasma science : advancing knowledge in the national interest by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"About every 10 years, the National Research Council undertakes a survey of physics. The most recent decadal survey, Physics in a New Era, was completed in 2001. The current survey, Physics 2010, is now in progress and is expected to be finished by 2010." "Physics 2010 comprises a series of books exploring the various disciplines of the field; a final volume will address physics as a whole. Each volume incorporates an assessment and outlook prepared by an independent study committee. The purpose of the survey is (1) to provide a snapshot of the field that helps track and enhance understanding of the evolution of the science, and (2) to identify and promote compelling emerging scientific opportunities."

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : A theoretical framework for low-frequency electromagnetic (drift-)kinetic turbulence in a collisionless, multi-species plasma is presented. The result generalises reduced magnetohydrodynamics (RMHD) and kinetic RMHD (Schekochihin etal., Astrophys.J. Suppl. Ser., vol.182, 2009, pp.310–377) to the case where the mean distribution function of the plasma is pressure-anisotropic and different ion species are allowed to drift with respect to each other – a situation routinely encountered in the solar wind and presumably ubiquitous in hot dilute astrophysical plasmas such as the intracluster medium. Two main objectives are achieved. First, in a non-Maxwellian plasma, the relationships between fluctuating fields (e.g. the Alfvén ratio) are order-unity modified compared to the more commonly considered Maxwellian case, and so a quantitative theory is developed to support quantitative measurements now possible in the solar wind. Beyond these order-unity corrections, the main physical feature of low-frequency plasma turbulence survives the generalisation to non-Maxwellian distributions: Alfvénic and compressive fluctuations are energetically decoupled, with the latter passively advected by the former; the Alfvénic cascade is fluid, satisfying RMHD equations (with the Alfvén speed modified by pressure anisotropy and species drifts), whereas the compressive cascade is kinetic and subject to collisionless damping (and for a bi-Maxwellian plasma splits into three independent collisionless cascades). Secondly, the organising principle of this turbulence is elucidated in the form of a conservation law for the appropriately generalised kinetic free energy. It is shown that non-Maxwellian features in the distribution function reduce the rate of phase mixing and the efficacy of magnetic stresses, and that these changes influence the partitioning of free energy amongst the various cascade channels. As the firehose or mirror instability thresholds are approached, the dynamics of the plasma are modified so as to reduce the energetic cost of bending magnetic-field lines or of compressing/rarefying them. Finally, it is shown that this theory can be derived as a long-wavelength limit of non-Maxwellian slab gyrokinetics

Electron diamagnetism and toroidal coupling of tearing modes by Steven C Cowley( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Using a simple model for the layer of the tearing mode, we demonstrate that toroidally coupled tearing modes with two rational surfaces are most unstable when the .omega.*'s of the electrons at the rational surfaces are equal. The onset of instability may then occur because of the tuning of .omega.* rather than the passage of .delta.'-like quantities through zero. This mechanism for the onset of instability is sharp since the resonance is narrow. The effect of toroidal rotation is also discussed. 7 refs., 2 figs
Investigations of multiphoton excitation and ionization in a short range potential by Steven C Cowley( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We introduce an approach to the study of excitation and ionization for a system with a short range potential. In particular, analytical and numerical results are presented for the multiphoton ionization rate, under strong field conditions, of an electron confined by a delta-function potential. 9 refs., 3 figs
