Kinetic Plasma Lectures: The inter-particle distance, an impact parameter no longer overlooked for the computation of collisional transport

D. F Escande
Aix-Marseille Université, CNRS

* What do we call collisions and what is their effect?
* Perturbative approximation to weak shielded Coulomb deflections
* Rutherford description for close collisions
* Obvious matching of the descriptions of close and far deflections

Host: Gian Luca Delzanno
