Plasma astrophysics kinetic processes in solar and stellar coronae by A. O Benz ( )
30 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This thoroughly revised textbook is a basic introduction to plasma phenomena in solar and stellar coronae emphasizing non-MHD aspects. The natural way in which the author unifies observations and theory gives a wide perspective to the subject. An important feature is the lucidly written presentation of the fundamentals of plasma physics. The basic theory thus developed is then extended to some exemplary and important observations of coronal dynamics, such as coronal currents, particle acceleration, propagation of particle beams, and shocks. The book has grown from teaching introductory courses on plasma astrophysics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH). It addresses advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students without a background in plasma physics. It will also be of interest to more senior research workers involved in coronal physics of the Sun and other stars, solar/stellar winds, and various other fields of plasma astrophysics
Coronal magnetic energy releases : proceedings of the CESRA workshop held in Caputh/Potsdam, Germany 16-20 May 1994 by Germany) CESRA Workshop (1994 : Caputh ( Book )
11 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book brings together a variety of review articles on dynamical phenomena in the solar corona in order to work out the unifying aspects of magnetic energy releases. The experimental data from groundbased methods of radio astronomy as well as from satellites are also discussed. The book addresses researchers in astrophysics, and planetary science but should also be accessible to graduate students
The future of the universe : chance, chaos, God? by A. O Benz ( Book )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Plasma astrophysics by J. G Kirk ( Book )
13 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents the lecture notes of the 24th Advanced Course of the Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy in March 1994 at Les Diablerets. In three lectures on magnetohydrodynamics, on kinetic plasma physics and on particle acceleration leading experts describe the physical basis of their subjects and extend the discussion to several applications in modern problems of astrophysics. In style and presentation the texts are well-suited for graduate work in plasma astrophysics, one of the very important tools of modern astronomy. The themes developed in this book will be helpful in understanding many processes in the universe from the solar corona to active galaxies
