  • Turbulence, Dynamos, Accretion Disks, Pulsars and Collective Plasma Processesby S.S. Hasan

    Springer 2008; US$ 279.00

    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...
