520 3 |a Plasma Modeling: Methods and Applications presents and discusses the different approaches that can be adopted for plasma modeling, giving details about theoretical and numerical methods. The book is intended to assist and direct students and researchers, who want to develop research activity in the field of plasma physics, in the choice of the best model for the problem of interest. The book is organised in three parts. The first describes kinetic models used in plasma investigations, consisting of the solution of the Boltzmann equation using different approaches. The second part develops the theory of fluid equations and of hybrid models, and the third part is devoted to applications, considering some practical problems of interest in different fields.

545 |a Gianpiero Colonna is Senior Researcher in the PLASMI-LAB at the National Research Council (CNR), Bari, Italy. His research activities are focused on plasma modeling, state-to-state self-consistent kinetics in gas discharges and hypersonic flows, thermodynamic and transport properties of plasmas, and modeling plasma plumes produced by ns laser pulses. Antonio D'Angola is Assistant Professor at the University of Basilicata in Italy. His scientific interests are numerical methods for the simulation of plasmas using Particle-In-Cell and Monte Carlo codes, the calculation of thermodynamic and transport properties of ionized plasmas for industrial and aerospace applications, the investigations of rf thermal discharges, non-neutral plasmas for ultra-high vacuum systems and laser-plasma interactions for medical applications.
