Fluid description is employed to investigate the collisional current-filamentation instability (CFI) in a weakly ionized warm-beamreturn current system, taking into account both thermal pressure and space charge effects.

Rayleigh-Taylor instabilities occur at two stages of the implosion of an ICF shell. The outer surface of the shell is unstable when the shell is accelerated inward by the pressure exerted by the beam-heated plasma.

The inner shell surface becomes unstable when the shell is slowed down by the hot spot gas. Ok)   Volume 80A, number 4 PHYSICS LETTERS RESISTIVE INSTABILITIES IN CURRENT-CARRYING MAGNETIZED PLASMAS Joseph E.

WILLETT and Hassan MEHDIAN Department of Physics, University of Missouri-Columbia, Columbia, MOUSA Received 28 April 8 December The stability of ion electrostatic waves with propagation vector nearly normal to a static magnetic field in a collisional plasma.

The instability causes flute-like structures to appear on the surface of the plasma, and thus the instability is also known as the flute instability. The interchange instability is a key issue in the field of fusion energy, where magnetic fields are used to confine a plasma in a volume surrounded by the field.

This paper develops the plasma physics of meteor trails and applies this theory to explain the origin and characteristics of radar measurements.

A companion paper in this same issue, entitled Plasma instabilities in meteor trails: 2-D simulation studies by Oppenheim et al. describes kinetic particle-in-cell simulations of meteor trails. Explosive phenomena such as internal disruptions in toroidal discharges and solar flares are difficult to explain in terms of linear instabilities.

A plasma approaching a linear stability limit can, however, become nonlinearly and explosively unstable, with noninfinitesimal perturbations even before the marginal state is reached. When these instabilities are excited, the quasilinear relaxation pushes the plasma back to the marginally stable state.

This is the qualitative reason why the observed solar wind as reported by Bale et al. [] and others is constrained by the marginal stability conditions for various instabilities. The 16th IAEA Technical Meeting on Energetic Particles in Magnetic Confinement Systems-Theory of Plasma Instabilities (EPPI ) was It succeeded, in particular, at identifying current physics issues and gaps associated with energetic particles in ITER and future fusion power plants.

slow) time scale (m and n are the poloidal and the toroidal mode number, respectively). They can be linearly or nonlinearly unstable. Methods of Wave Theory in Dispersive Media. This book presents the main mathematical methods of description and general problems in the theory of linear waves in dispersive systems and media, including equilibrium and nonequilibrium waves.

To show how the general theory can be applied in practice, the authors give a unified description of the. THE STELLARATOR APPROACH TO TOROIDAL PLASMA CONFINEMENT John L.

Based on fully kinetic model using drift-Maxwellian distributions and taking into account the transverse electrostatic field (TEF), it is shown that the current-filamentation instability (CFI) grows unexpectedly with the plasma temperature.

The growth is attributed to the decreasing of the TEF as. Since the current induced by the CME leads to the instability in the magnetic fields in chiral plasma, known as the chiral plasma instability (CPI) [30, 31], it is, e.ascribed as the possible.

In this book, a distinguished expert introduces plasma physics from the ground up, presenting it as a comprehensible field that can be grasped largely on the basis of physical intuition and qualitative reasoning, similar to other fields of physics.

The purpose of the book is to allow the student to master the basic concepts of plasma physics and to bring him or her up to date in a number of relevant areas of current research.

Topics covered include orbit theory, kinetic theory, fluid models, magnetohydrodynamics, MHD turbulence, instabilities, discontinuities, and magnetic reconnection. The filamentation instability of counterstreaming beams is a nonresonant hydrodynamic-type instability whose growth rate is a smooth function of the wavelength (scale).

As a result, perturbations with all unstable wavelengths develop, and the. Plasma Physics is an authoritative and wide-ranging pedagogic study of the "fourth" state of matter. The constituents of the plasma state are influenced by electric and magnetic fields, and in turn also produce electric and magnetic fields.

This fact leads to a rich array of properties of plasma described in this text. The author uses examples throughout, many taken from astrophysical. Editorial Reviews.

From the reviews: Plasma Physics offers a broad and modern introduction to the many aspects of plasma science. A curious student or interested researcher could track down laboratory notes, older monographs, and obscure papers. with an extensive list of more than references and, in particular, its excellent overview of the various techniques to generate.

A pinch is the compression of an electrically conducting filament by magnetic forces, or a device that does such. The conductor is usually a plasma, but could also be a solid or liquid s were the first type of device used for experiments in controlled nuclear fusion power.
