Whistler-mode Waves in a Hot Plasma

292,80 

Whistler-mode Waves in a Hot Plasma Autor: Sergei Sazhin


The book provides an extensive theoretical treatment of whistler-mode propagation, instabilities and damping in a collisionless plasma. This book fills a gap between oversimplified analytical studies of these waves, based on the cold plasma approximation, and studies based on numerical methods. Although the book is primarily addressed to space plasma physicists and radio physicists, it will also prove useful to laboratory plasma physicists. Mathematical methods described in the book can be applied in a straightforward way to the analysis of other types of plasma waves. Problems included in this book, along with their solutions, allow it to be used as a textbook for postgraduate students.


Spis treści: 1. Basic equations 2. Propagation in a cold plasma 3. Parallel propagation (weakly relativistic approximation) 4
