Plasma Dynamics for Aerospace Engineering
This valuable resource summarizes the past fifty years’ primary research accomplishments in plasma dynamics for aerospace engineering, presenting these results in a comprehensive volume that will be an asset to any professional in the field. It offers a comprehensive review of the foundations of plasma dynamics while integrating the most recently developed modeling and simulation techniques with theoretical physics, including state-of-the-art numerical algorithms. Several first-ever demonstrations of innovations and intelligent explanations for previously unexplained observations are included. All the necessary formulations for the technical evaluation of engineering applications are derived from the first principles of statistics and quantum mechanics and lead to physics-based computational simulations for practical applications. The computer-aided procedures directly engage the reader to duplicate findings that are nearly impossible to achieve using ground-based experimental facilities. Plasma Dynamics for Aerospace Engineering will allow readers to gain an intelligent understanding of plasma physics.
