    • Special focus on two-dimensional problems (electric arc; radiofrequency, microwave, optical discharges).
    • With discussion of the use of glow discharges in aerospace technology.
    • Includes many examples from modern computational magnetohydrodynamics.

    Aims and Scope

    This work concerns the computational modelling of the dynamics of partially ionized gases, with emphasis on electrodischarge processes. Understanding gas discharges is fundamental for many processes in mechanics, manufacturing, materials science, and aerospace engineering.

    This second edition has been expanded to include the latest developments in the field, especially regarding the drift-diffusion model and rarefied hypersonic flow.
