  • Multi-scale Dynamical Processes in Space and Astrophysical Plasmasby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 199.00

    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...
