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…

An introduction to the use of projection-operator methods for the derivation of classical fluid transport equations for weakly coupled, magnetised, multispecies plasmas is given. In the present work,

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 prescient

Anomalous transport due to long-lived fluctuations in plasma Part 2. Hydrodynamic contributions to transport in two-dimensional, strongly magnetized systems

The general formalism for treating two-time fluctuations in magnetized plasma, developed in part 1 of this series, is applied to the case of anomalous cross-field transport in 2-D, strongly

Transport Equations of Plasma in a Curvilinear Magnetic Field

The problem of transport equations of a collisional plasma in a curvilinear magnetic field is studied. Two main approaches to this problem are presented: that based on using the Boltzmann kinetic

Test Particles in a Completely Ionized Plasma

Starting from the Liouville equation, a chain of equations is obtained by integrating out the coordinates of all but one, two, etc., particles. One ``test'' particle is singled out initially. All

Transport equations and gradient instabilities in a high pressure collisional plasma

A theoretical study is presented of the instability of plasma wth finite ratio of particle to magnetic pressures. The instabilities caused by spatial gradients are considered. They have a

Two new proofs of the test particle superposition principle of plasma kinetic theory

The test particle superposition principle of plasma kinetic theory is discussed in relation to the recent theory of two‐time fluctuations in plasma given by Williams and Oberman. Both a new deductive

Variational approach to the closure problem of turbulence theory

A new method is proposed to solve the closure problem of turbulence theory and to drive the Kolmogorov law in an Eulerian framework. Instead of using complex Fourier components of velocity field as
