goals

The students understand the basics of mathematical modeling of technical plasmas and recognize that the clear understanding and the theoretical description of plasma technology systems complement each other.

content

The concepts to describe plasmas (and other forms of matter) are fields, waves, and particles. They are given a clear meaning and put into context.

  1. Fields as structures in space and time
  2. Maxwell equations and fluid dynamic models
  3. Models for fast and slow phenomena
  4. Dispersion relation
