Non-Equilibrium Dynamics, Interfaces and Mixing in Plasmas
This Special Topic collects articles presented at the mini-conference "Non-equilibrium Transport, Interfaces and Mixing in Plasmas" at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Division of Plasma Physics of the American Physical Society. Non-equilibrium Transport, Interfaces and Mixing play an important role in plasmas in high and low energy density regimes, at astrophysical and at atomic scales, in nature and technology. Examples include the instabilities and interfacial mixing in supernovae and in inertial confinement fusion, particle-field interactions in magnetic fusion and in imploding Z-pinches, downdrafts in stellar interior and in planetary magneto-convection, magnetic flux ropes and structures in the Solar corona and plasma instabilities in the Earth ionosphere, plasma thrusters and nano-fabrication.
