The time-independent projection-operator formalism of Brey et al. (Physica A, vol. 109, 1981, pp. 425–444) for the derivation of Burnett equations is extended and considered in the context of multispecies and magnetized plasmas. The procedure provides specific formulas for transport coefficients in terms of two-time correlation functions involving both two and three phase-space points. It is shown how to calculate those correlation functions in the limit of weak coupling. The results are used… Expand
Projection-operator methods for classical transport in magnetized plasmas. Part 1. Linear response, the Braginskii equations and fluctuating hydrodynamics
An introduction to the use of projection-operator methods for the derivation of classical fluid transport equations for weakly coupled, magnetized plasmas is given. In the present work, linearExpand
Dissipation-Range Fluid Turbulence and Thermal Noise
We revisit the issue of whether thermal fluctuations are relevant for incompressible fluid turbulence, and estimate the scale at which they become important. As anticipated by Betchov in a prescientExpand
