Particles and Fields: Exact Self-Consistent Description

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 341)


There exist two different ways to describe exactly the behaviour of a system of charged particles in electromagnetic and gravitational fields. The first description, the Newton set of motion equations, is convenient for a small number of interacting particles. For systems of large numbers of particles, it is more advantageous to deal with the single Liouville equation for an exact distribution function.
