Collective Plasma Phenomena and their Role in the Dynamics of the Interstellar Medium

  • B. B. Kadomtsev (a1) and V. N. Tsytovich (a1)

Extract

The First Symposium on cosmical gas dynamics clearly demonstrated that magnetic fields play an essential role in the dynamics of the interstellar matter. The Symposium emphasized that the behavior of interstellar gas should be described not by traditional gas dynamics but with the help of magneto-gas dynamics. As we now realize this was only the first step, since in plasmas a very broad range of phenomena can occur which are coupled not with large-scale magneto-gas dynamic motions but rather with more subtle collective plasma motions. To describe properly the dynamics of an ensemble of charged particles we should use not only average characteristics such as density, pressure and mean velocity, but also more detailed features of the particle distribution function.
