Research Interest

Research FieldSpace Plasma Physics
Research Summary

Space is not perfectly empty but filled with a very low density charged gas called plasma. My research interest is electromagnetic dynamics of space plasmas. Recent work is research on thermodynamical aspect of relativistic plasmas. How do we define the Lorentz transform of temperature?

KeywordsSpace plasma physics Relativity Thermodynamics Statistical mechanics
