Heat and Mass Transfer under Plasma Conditions


More than 99% of the visible matter in the universe is in the plasma state, where it forms the basis of a wide variety of objects and phenomena. This richness of the fourth aggregation state of matter is especially reflected in the wide diversity in plasma transport processes. This book collects more than 60 papers from the first international symposium on heat and mass transfer under plasma conditions, held in Cesme, Turkey in 1994. This important field is well covered in this volueme, from plasma modeling and characterizations to new branches of plasma physics.
