Test Wave Approach 2. Waves in Hot Magnetized Isotropic Plasmas

  • Reinhard Schlickeiser
Part of the Astronomy and Astrophysics Library book series (AAL)


According to the kinetic theory of plasma waves (Sect. 8.3) the electromagnetic fluctuations in a given initial configuration (f (0) a , E 0, B 0), after an initial transit period, will consist of a spectrum of normal modes at different wavenumbers, see (8.3.42). After discussing the cold plasma limit in the last chapter we now turn our attention to hot plasmas.
