A nonlinear kinetic equation for nonrelativistic quantum plasma with electromagnetic interaction of particles is obtained in the Hartree’s mean-field approximation. It is cast in a convenient form of Vlasov-Boltzmann-type equation with “quantum interference integral”, which allows for relatively straightforward modification of existing classical Vlasov codes to incorporate quantum effects (quantum statistics and quantum interference of overlapping particles wave functions), without changing the…
