Let us say that we have a dispersion relation curve and associated instability curve as shown below for a magnetised plasma, which have been formulated through kinetic theory. The frequencies and growth rate have been normalized w.r.t. cyclotron frequency of proton.
My question is: what does...
In plasma physics we have what is known as plasma dispersion function. There are two approximation under which this function can be expanded: when the argument is less than 1, we can use power series expansion and when the argument is greater than 1 we can have asymptotic expression.
My...
I have to do a integration which goes like this:
(V-M)(dP/dx)+3P(dV/dx)=0, (where M,P and V are constants).
If you integrate with dx, you will get:
∫[(V-M)dP]+∫[3PdV]=0.
which ultimately results in the answer M=4V.
Now, i can put the first equation in this form also...
hello...
i was using physics forum 1 year ago and i used to post some questions and some answers also. Now i would like to have a look on those older stuffs. But, i searched, in vain, extensively in PF. Can anyone guide me through this???
Thanks in advance...
After some integration, i am getting a form e^{i \alpha\phi+i\beta\phi\sin(\phi-\phi')-i\gamma\sin\phi} , where ##\alpha, \beta, \gamma## are constants. Now i want to apply the limit where ##\phi ## ranges from 0 to ##\infty ## (ya, in the argument of sine we will encounter ##\infty ## which is...
What is the difference between generating function and Rodrigue's formula? Some says that from generating function you can generate required polynomial (say for example from generating function of Legendre polynomial you can get Legendre polynomial.), but in that case,as far as i know, Rodrigues...
In x-ray diffraction , even though its reflection is happening , we call this as x ray diffraction. why is it so?? i don't know whether it has been discussed previously here.
Voltage(V) is proportional to current(I). And so V=(a constant)*I. That constant is known as resistance(R), where R=V/I. Why can't we write that I proportional to V and then write R=I/V??
Photon's antiparticle!!!
It's said that photon is an antiparticle of itself. Also there are some particle following this property. How is this happening?
