Fluid description of relativistic, magnetized plasma

Abstract

Many astrophysical plasmas and some laboratory plasmas are relativistic: either the thermal speed or the local ow speed (in a convenient frame) approaches the speed of light. Many such plasmas are also magnetized, in the sense that the thermal Larmor radius is smaller than gradient scale lengths. Relativistic MHD, conventionally used to describe such… (More)
