LARGE AMPLITUDE WAVES IN LABORATORY AND SPACE PLASMAS

Objective



The generation and interaction of large amplitude waves in plasma plays a fundamental role in problems such as Laser Fusion, Radio Frequency heating, Ionospheric Modification and Plasma Accelerators. In space and astrophysical plasmas waves play an important role in cometary plasmas, bow shock physics, the aurora as well as pulsar radiation. The study of such large amplitude waves in the strongly nonlinear regime including relativistic effects where applicable is of fundamental importance in the understanding of the plasma system.
