This paper reports calculations of the collision-free expansion of a semi-infinite plasma. It is shown that the ion front is accelerated to velocities comparable with the thermal velocity of the… Expand

The general theory of irreversible processes in solutions of macromolecules is employed to investigate the visco‐elastic behavior of solutions of rod‐like macromolecules. It is found that rotatory… Expand

The collective motions of a fully ionized cold plasma in a uniform external magnetic field are treated by standard small amplitude theory. Finite temperature and collision effects are neglected.… Expand

Thermalization processes in the earth's bow shock are examined with particular emphasis on ion heating. A two-dimensional analysis of the ion-ion streaming instability using the complete… Expand

The basic problem in the energy crisis is to balance energy supply and demand in such a way that various economic, international, environmental, and societal factors are taken into consideration even… Expand

The nonlinear transport of magnetic field in collisionless plasmas, as present in the plasma opening switch (POS), using the implicit multifluid simulation code anthem [J. Comput. Phys. 71, 429… Expand

Ideal diffusion in the sense of Fick's law in a heterogeneous system composed of two liquids is discussed by means of a three‐region model where the two bulk liquid regions adjoin a third region… Expand
