Electrodynamic properties of a non-degenerate low-temperature plasma at ħ → 0

Plasma Physics


Electrodynamics of a low-temperature plasma, including a quantized longitudinal electromagnetic field and containing a dimensionless quantum parameter, are presented. Such a parameter is the dimensionless charge inversely proportional to the root-mean-square velocity of electrons in plasma and larger than unity in magnitude. Thus, the results of numerical calculations based on the perturbation theory are now in doubt.
