Electron Transport in a Spherically Symmetric Plasma

  • R. A. Grandey
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (volume 36)


The previous paper has outlined the phenomena involved in laser-induced fusion and has indicated that the numerical models used for hydrodynamic simulation must incorporate a rather complete treatment of electron-transport, not restricted to the diffusion approximation, before final resolution of coronal physics mechanisms can be made.
