In this chapter, the plasmadynamical processes treated classically in chapter 5 are generalized to QPD. First, a set of rules is formulated for drawing Feynman diagrams, writing down the amplitudes for these diagrams and identifying the transition probabilities for specific processes. Emphasis is also placed on examples where plasma effects play a role, such that the QPD theory differs significantly from QED in vacuo. For example, this distinction is unimportant at sufficiently high energy where the plasma effects are unimportant, and QED in vacuo applies.
