Coulomb Collisions in Astrophysical Plasma

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 341)

Abstract

Binary collisions of particles with the Coulomb potential of interaction are typical for physics of collisional plasmas in space and especially for gravitational systems. Coulomb collisions of fast particles with plasma particles determine momentum and energy losses of fast particles, the relaxation processes in astrophysical plasma.
