Collisionless Plasmas in Astrophysics examines the unique properties of media without collisions in plasma physics. Experts in this field, the authors present the first book to concentrate on collisionless conditions in plasmas, whether close or not to thermal equilibrium. Filling a void in scientific literature, Collisionless Plasmas in Astrophysics... more...
- Springer New York 2013; US$ 189.00
This book provides a systematic treatment of shock waves in high-temperature collisionless plasmas as are encountered in near Earth space and astrophysics. It offers a unique and excellently illustrated course on shock wave physics and applications. more...

Fully updated and revised, this second edition of the classic text on plasma astrophysics covers all the fundamentals and includes new sections on subjects such as plasma heating by reverse current, the moment equations, and the Grad-Shafranov equation. more...
- Springer New York 2012; US$ 249.00
The new edition of this second volume in the set retains a focus on reconnection and flares, but features numerous revisions and updates, including fresh material on classification of zeroth points, motions of the coronal HXR sources, and much else. more...

Magnetized plasmas in the universe exhibit complex dynamical behavior over a huge range of scales. The fundamental mechanisms of energy transport, redistribution and conversion occur at multiple scales. The driving mechanisms often include energy accumulation, free-energy-excited relaxation processes, dissipation and self-organization. The plasma processes... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 94.00
This invaluable book provides a unique opportunity to embrace the complex and fascinating theory of relaxation processes in magnetized plasmas, both in astrophysics and in controlled fusion plasmas. The subjects range from dynamo and reconnection processes in magneto-hydrodynamics and electromagnetic turbulence to fast transport events in self-organized... more...

It is well established and appreciated by now that more than 99 per cent of the baryonic matter in the universe is in the plasma state. Most astrophysical systems could be approximated as conducting fluids in a gravitational field. It is the combined effect of these two that gives rise to the mind boggling variety of configurations in the form of filaments,... more...

Magnetic ?elds are easily generated in astrophysical plasma owing to its ?6 high conductivity. Magnetic ?elds, having strengths of order few 10 G, correlated on several kiloparsec scales are seen in spiral galaxies. Their origin could be due to ampli?cation of a small seed ?eld by a turbulent galactic dynamo. In several galaxies, like the famous M51,... more...
