Plasma Dynamics


A two-temperature magnetohydrodynamic model of an ideal, fully ionized magnetized plasma consisting of electrons and several types of ions is developed for the case in which the mass of ions of the first type is much lower than that of jth-type ions, where j = 2,3,…, m 1m j, while the densities of heavy ions are so low that collisions between them can be neglected. The ion component is assigned a common velocity, common temperature, and common density, while its composition can vary in time and space.
