Directional transport equations for plasmas
- 13 Downloads
The equations governing the directional transport of plasmas are derived from the Boltzmann's equation by averaging over a given subset of the velocity space. Their application to plasma confinement by means of external time-dependent electromagnetic fields is discussed.
