  • In many plasmas, in particular in space science, protons govern much of the essential physics. Minority ions, suprathermal tails, and electrons at times account for additional details. However, electron effects usually appear on much smaller spatial and temporal scales. For more than two decades, scientists have refined computational models that concentrate on the dominating and larger-scale ion kinetic physics, while treating the much lighter electrons as a charge-neutralizing fluid. These… CONTINUE READING
