## Transport Processes in Multicomponent PlasmaTransport Processes in Multicomponent Plasma is a revised and updated version of the original Russian edition. The book examines transport phenomena in multicomponent plasma and looks at important issues such as partially ionized gases, molecular gas mixtures and methods of calculating kinetic coefficients. It makes a logical progression from simpler to more general problems, and the results presented in the book may be used to calculate the kinetic coefficients of plasma in electric and magnetic fields. The author concludes by describing several practical applications such as electrical conductivity and Hall's effect in MHD-generators. Transport Processes in Multicomponent Plasma will be of interest to advanced students and specialized researchers working in various aspects of plasma physics, including both cold plasmas for industrial research and high temperature plasmas in fusion. |
