The spectral properties associated with laminar, anti-parallel reconnection are examined using a D kinetic particle in cell simulation. Both the reconnection rate and the energy spectrum exhibit three distinct phases: an initiation phase where the reconnection rate grows, a quasi-steady phase, and a declining phase where both the reconnection rate and the energy spectrum decrease. A four-satellite mission that is studying magnetic reconnection — the breaking apart and explosive reconnection of the magnetic field lines in plasma that occurs throughout the universe — has found key aspects of the process in space to be strikingly similar to those found in experiments at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton.

The book focuses on the various reconnection mechanisms dominating magnetic processes under the different plasma conditions encountered in astrophysical systems and in laboratory devices. The book consists of two major parts: the first deals with the classical resistive approach, while the second presents an overview of weakly collisional or.   The motions of the plasma blob leads to the twist of the magnetic field lines and the magnetically closed structures begin to appear in the inner of the plasma blob; when t = 18τ A, the obvious single X-line reconnections begin to develop in the region of the current sheet, afterwards they evolve towards multiple X-line reconnection and form a.

Baumjohann3 1Department of Geophysics and Environmental Sciences, Munich University, Munich, Germany 2Department of Physics and Astronomy, Dartmouth College, Hanover NH , USA. This is the final report of a three-year, Laboratory-Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Magnetic reconnection produces fundamental changes in the magnetic field topology of plasmas and leads ultimately to substantial plasma heating and acceleration. The transfer of stored magnetic field energy to the plasma occurs primarily at thin.

This book is designed mainly for. Space plasma physics often requires that dynamics be analyzed in terms of both the motion of individual particle and in terms of macroscopic moments such as temperature T, density n, and pressure dual particle motion is based on considering the force F = q(E + v × B) acting on a particle of charge q, mass m, and moving with a velocity v in an electric field E and magnetic field B.

Magnetic reconnection is a fundamental energy conversion process in collisionless plasmas involving multi-scale processes. While the topology of the magnetic field changes take place inside a small region where electrons become unmagnetized, regions of acceleration and heating of plasma are distributed at larger scales, driving global plasma transport, such as magnetospheric convection, or.

Book Description Magnetic reconnection is at the core of many dynamic phenomena in the universe. This authoritative volume, written by two world leaders on the subject, gives the first comprehensive overview of this fundamental process.

Plasma contained within a magnetic field in space frequently comes across other plasma. If the plasmas have oppositely polarized magnetic fields, they can still interact through a process called magnetic reconnection. According to observations of space, magnetic reconnection occurs when two plasmas are only separated by a weaker magnetic field.
