Kinetic Plasma Lectures: Collisions” bring self-organization to plasmas: dielectric behavior and Debye shielding

D. F Escande
Aix-Marseille Université, CNRS

* How a particle can be shielded by all other ones, while contributing to shielding them all
* Leads to revisiting the Vlasovian picture
* A single Vlasov equation, but several non equivalent derivations: what is the velocity distribution function?
* Beam-plasma system: a secondary instability beyond the Vlasovian one

Host: Gian Luca Delzanno
