Calculation of the energy relaxation times of a two component plasma Jankulak, Francis Joseph
Employing variational procedures on the transport equation we calculate, in this thesis, three relaxation times of a typical shock tube plasma. They are the electron-electron, ion-ion, and electron-ion relaxational times. The results are compared to those obtained by other authors, and are essentially an improvement on the work done by Phillips.
