Description

This book is devoted to research in the actual field of mathematical modeling in modern problems of plasma physics associated with vibrations and wake waves excited by a short high-power laser pulse. The author explores the hydrodynamic model of the wake wave in detail and from different points of view, within the framework of its regular propagation, a development suitable for accelerating electrons, and the final tipping effect resulting in unregulated energy transfer to plasma particles.

Key selling features:

  • Presents research directly related to the propagation of super-power short laser pulses (subject of the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics).
  • Presents mathematical modeling of plasma physics associated with vibrations and wake waves excited by a short high-power laser pulse.
  • Includes studies of large-amplitude plasma oscillations.
  • Most of the presented results are of original nature and have not appeared in the domestic and foreign scientific literature
  • Written at a level accessible for researchers, academia, and engineers.
