Adiabatic Invariants in Astrophysical Plasma

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


Adiabatic invariants are useful to understand many interesting properties of collisionless plasma in cosmic magnetic fields: trapping and acceleration of charged particles in collapsing magnetic traps, the Fermi acceleration, “cosmic rays” origin.
