Analytical methods

Analytical methods for plasma models analyses include traditional approaches of mathematical physics, differential equations, theory of complex functions and etc. Being very useful for qualitative estimations, analytical results are very limited for quantitative calculations. Some examples of analytic solution of problems in plasma physics can be found in the book “Днестровский Ю.Н., Костомаров Д.П. Математическое моделирование плазмы. - М: Наука, первое издание 1982, 320 с., второе издание 1993, 336 с. (Issue in English: Yu.N. Dnestrovskij, D.P. Kostomarov. Numerical Simulations of Plasmas. Springer-Verlag, New-York, 1986.)”
