TitleEnergy transfers in fluid flows: Multiscale and Spectral Perspectives
Author(s)Mahendra K. Verma
PublicationCambridge```, Cambridge University Press, 2019.
Descriptionxxv, 541p.
Abstract Note Description Contents Resources Courses About the Authors An up-to-date comprehensive text useful for graduate students and academic researchers in the field of energy transfers in fluid flows. The initial part of the text covers discussion on energy transfer formalism in hydrodynamics and the latter part covers applications including passive scalar, buoyancy driven flows, magnetohydrodynamic (MHD), dynamo, rotating flows and compressible flows. Energy transfers among large-scale modes play a critical role in nonlinear instabilities and pattern formation and is discussed comprehensively in the chapter on buoyancy-driven flows. It derives formulae to compute Kolmogorov's energy flux, shell-to-shell energy transfers and locality. The book discusses the concept of energy transfer formalism which helps in calculating anisotropic turbulence.

TitleIntroduction to modern magnetohydrodynamics
Author(s)Sebastien Galtier
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2016.
Descriptionxv,268p.
Abstract NoteNinety-nine percent of ordinary matter in the Universe is in the form of ionized fluids, or plasmas. The study of the magnetic properties of such electrically conducting fluids, magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), has become a central theory in astrophysics, as well as in areas such as engineering and geophysics. This textbook offers a comprehensive introduction to MHD and its recent applications, in nature and in laboratory plasmas; from the machinery of the Sun and galaxies, to the cooling of nuclear reactors and the geodynamo. It exposes advanced undergraduate and graduate students to both classical and modern concepts, making them aware of current research and the ever-widening scope of MHD. Rigorous derivations within the text, supplemented by over 100 illustrations and followed by exercises and worked solutions at the end of each chapter, provide an engaging and practical introduction to the subject and an accessible route into this wide-ranging field.

TitleMagnetic helicity, spheromaks, solar corona loops, and astrophysical jets
Author(s)Paul M. Bellan
PublicationNew Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2018.
Descriptionxxii, 630p.
Abstract NotePedagogical in style, this book provides insights into plasma behavior valid over twenty orders of magnitude in both time and space. The book assumes that the reader has a basic knowledge of magnetohydrodynamics and explains topics using detailed theoretical analysis supported by discussion of relevant experiments. This comprehensive approach gives the reader an understanding of the essential theoretical ideas and their application to real situations. The book starts by explaining the topological concept of magnetic helicity and then develops a helicity-based model that predicts the ultimate state towards which magnetically-dominated plasmas evolve. The model predicts that no matter how messy or complicated the dynamics, a great range of plasma configurations always self-organize to a unique, simple final state. This self-organization, called relaxation, is a fundamental concept that unifies understanding of spheromaks, solar corona loops, interplanetary magnetic clouds, and astrophysical jets. After establishing why relaxation occurs, the book then examines how relaxation occurs. It shows that relaxation involves a sequence of complex non-equilibrium dynamics including fast self-collimated plasma jets, kink instabilities, magnetic reconnection, and phenomena outside the realm of magnetohydrodynamics.

TitleRelativistic astrophysics of the transient universe : gravitation, hydrodynamics and radiation
Author(s)Maurice H.P.M. Van Putten, Korea Institute for Advanced Study, Amir Levinson, Tel Aviv University
Description1 online resource (xx, 333 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteIn this decade, the transient universe will be mapped out in great detail by the emerging wide-field multiwavelength surveys, and neutrino and gravitational-wave detectors, promising to probe the astronomical and physical origin of the most extreme relativistic sources. This volume introduces the physical processes relevant to the source modeling of the transient universe. Ideal for graduate students and researchers in astrophysics, this book gives a unified treatment of relativistic flows associated with compact objects, their dissipation and emission in electromagnetic, hadronic and gravitational radiation. After introducing the source classes, the authors set out various mechanisms for creating magnetohydodynamic outflows in winds, jets and blast waves and their radiation properties. They then go on to discuss properties of accretion flows around rotating black holes and their gravitational wave emission from wave instabilites with implications for the emerging gravitational wave experiments. Graduate students and researchers can gain an understanding of data analysis for gravitational-wave data

TitleQuantum plasmadynamics : magnetized plasmas
Author(s)Donald Melrose
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2013.
Description1 online resource
Abstract NoteThe covariant (4-tensor) theory for relativistic quantum plasmas presented in the first volume is generalized to magnetized plasma in this second volume. The first four chapters are concerned with classical theory, including covariant forms of cold-plasma, MHD and kinetic theory and the theory of gyromagnetic emission. The response 4-tensor for an arbitrary distribution is evaluated, using both the forward-scattering and Vlasov methods, applied to a relativistic thermal distribution and used to discuss wave dispersion in relativistic magnetized plasmas. In the second half of the book, solutions of Dirac's equation for a magnetized electron are used to develop a magnetized version of QED. This form of QED is applied to gyromagnetic processes, the response of the magnetized vacuum and the response of a magnetized electron gas. The theory has a potentially wide range of applications, such as super-strong magnetic fields in pulsars, high-powered lasers and spin-dependence in a laboratory electron gas

TitleBlack hole gravitohydromagnetics
Author(s)by Brian Punsly
Edition2nd ed
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2008.
Description1 online resource (xiv, 399 p.) : ill
Abstract Note"Black hole gravitohydromagnetics (GHM) is developed from the rudiments to the frontiers of research in this book. GHM describes plasma interactions that combine the effects of gravity and a strong magnetic field, in the vicinity (ergosphere) of a rapidly rotating black hole. This topic was created in response to the astrophysical quest to understand the central engines of radio loud extragalactic radio sources. The theory describes a "torsional tug of war" between rotating ergospheric plasma and the distant asymptotic plasma that extracts the rotational inertia of the black hole. The recoil from the struggle between electromagnetic and gravitational forces near the event horizon is manifested as a powerful pair of magnetized particle beams (jets) that are ejected at nearly the speed of light. These bipolar jets feed large-scale magnetized plasmoids on scales as large as millions of light years (the radio lobes of extragalactic radio sources). This interaction can initiate jets that transport energy fluxes exceeding 10[superscript 47] ergs/s." "This second edition of the book is updated throughout and contains a completely new chapter discussing state of the art and results of numerical simulations of ergospheric disk jets occuring in magnetohydrodynamic accretion flows."--Jacket
