"The purpose of this book is to address the growing recognition of the need for
+
plasma physics in astrophysics. In fact, astrophysics has contributed to the growth of
+
plasma physics, especially in the field of plasma waves . During the last decade, plasma physics, or more appropriately, plasma science, has witnessed an explosive
+
growth in two areas : pulsed-power technology and space physics. Both have led to
+
knowledge that is mutual and complementary, and the material in this book largely
+
derives from these new discoveries and their application to astrophysics. [..]
+
 
+
"Today plasma is recognized as the key element to understanding
+
the generation of magnetic fields in planets, stars, and galaxies; phenomena occurring
+
in stellar atmospheres, in the interstellar and intergalactic media, in radio galaxies, in quasars, and in active galactic nuclei ; and the acceleration and transport of
+
cosmic rays . There are convincing arguments for the view that the clouds out of
+
which galaxies form and stars condense are ionized : The problem of the formation
+
and structure of these clouds and bodies, therefore, naturally belongs to the field of
+
cosmic plasmas as well as astrophysics. [..]
+
 
+
"Together these problems form what is called The Plasma Universe, the basis for
+
this book . The material presented dwell s basically on the known properties of matter
+
in the plasma state. Some of the interesting topics in contemporary astrophysics such
+
as discordant redshifts and other cosmological issues are not discussed here . The
+
interested reader will be referred to the ''IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science'', Special
+
Issues on Space and Cosmic Plasmas (December 1986, April 1989, and February 1990), and ''Laser and Particle Beams'' (August 1988). [..]
+
 
+
"This book is organized into eight chapters. '''Chapter 1''' is an introduction to the
+
fundamental physics of cosmic plasmas . An attempt is made to review the known
+
properties of plasmas from the laboratory scale to the Hubble distance. '''Chapter 2'''
+
starts the application of basic plasma theory to astrophysical plasmas in the study o f
+
magnetic-field-aligned (Birkeland) currents and charged particle beams . '''Chapter 3'''
+
covers magnetism in plasma and the Biot-Savart force law, while Chapter 4 concen -
+
trates on electric fields in space and cosmic plasmas . '''Chapters 5, 6, and 7''' survey
+
double layers, synchrotron radiation, and energy transport in plasmas, respectively.
+
'''Chapter 8''' covers the particle-in-cell simulation of astrophysical plasmas. Found
+
throughout the book are examples that apply the material of the chapter or section to
+
specific problems."

'''Extract:'''
+
 
+
The aims of the present monograph may be summarized as follows:
+
*(1) Attention will be given to the question of how much knowledge can be gained by a systematic comparison of different regions of plasma. We will consider plasmas with linear dimensions which vary from laboratory size up to the Hubble distance.
+
*(2) The traditional magnetic field description of plasmas will be supplemented by an electric current description. It is demonstrated that many problems are easier to understand with a dualistic approach.
+
*(3) A rather strict distinction will be made between plasma regions which are accessible to ''in situ'' diagnostics and those regions which are not. In the former, we can expect to understand the plasma phenomena reasonably well, and to be able to discriminate between different interpretations, whereas in the latter regions, conclusions must necessarily remain largely speculative.
+
*(4) It is claimed in this monograph that in the speculative domain, those theories, which are based on what we know from laboratory experiments and from regions accessible to spacecraft measurements, deserve higher credibility than those which are based on theories which we know to be misleading when applied to regions that have been subject to high-quality diagnostics.
+
:As it is impossible to treat an extensive and complicated field like cosmic plasma physics in a rigorous way in a monograph of the present size, we have followed the policy that – as Kadomtsev (1965) puts it – "when rigour appears to conflict with simplicity, simplicity is given preference".
