Landau Diamagnetism of Degenerate Collisional Plasma

  title={Landau Diamagnetism of Degenerate Collisional Plasma},
  author={Anatoly V. Latyshev and Alexander A. Yushkanov},
  journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics},
For the first time the kinetic description of Landau diamagnetism for degenerate collisional plasma is given. The correct expression for transverse electric conductivity of the quantum plasma, found by authors (see arXiv:1002.1017 [math-ph] 4 Feb 2010) is used. In work S. Dattagupta, A.M. Jayannavar and N. Kumar [Current science, V. 80, No. 7, 10 April, 2001] was discussed the important problem of dissipation (collisions) influence on Landau diamagnetism. The analysis of this problem is given…

Landau diamagnetism revisited

The problem of diamagnetism, solved by Landau, continues to pose fascinating issues which have relevance even today. These issues relate to inherent quantum nature of the problem, the role of

Transverse electric conductivity of quantum collisional plasmas

Formulas for calculation of transverse dielectric function and transverse electric conductivity in quantum collisional plasmas under arbitrary degree of degeneracy of the electron gas are received.

Classical Langevin dynamics of a charged particle moving on a sphere and diamagnetism: A surprise

It is generally known that the orbital diamagnetism of a classical system of charged particles in thermal equilibrium is identically zero —the Bohr-van Leeuwen theorem. Physically, this null result

Lindhard Dielectric Functions with a Finite Electron Lifetime

The finite-electron-lifetime expressions for the longitudinal and transverse dielectric functions of a free-electron gas obtained by Lindhard in the self-consistent-field approximation are examined.
