Macroscopic Description of Astrophysical Plasma
In this Chapter we are not concerned with individual particles but we will treat individual kinds of particles as continuous media interacting between themselves and with an electromagnetic field. This approach gives us the multi-fluid models of plasma, which are useful to consider many properties of astrophysical plasma.
