# The collisional relaxation rate of kappa-distributed plasma with multiple components

@article{Guo2018TheCR, title={The collisional relaxation rate of kappa-distributed plasma with multiple components}, author={Ran Guo}, journal={AIP Advances}, year={2018} }

The kappa-distributed fully ionized plasma with collisional interaction is investigated. The Fokker-Planck equation with Rosenbluth potential is employed to describe such a physical system. The results show that the kappa distribution is not a stationary distribution unless the parameter kappa tends to infinity. The general expressions of collisional relaxation rate of multiple-component plasma with kappa distribution are derived and discussed in specific cases in details. For the purpose of…
