The electron distribution function downstream of the solar-wind termination shock: Where are the hot electrons?
Astronomy and Astrophysics
In the majority of the literature on plasma shock waves, electrons play the role of "ghost particles," since their contribution to mass and momentum flows is negligible, and they have been treated as only taking care of the electric plasma neutrality. In some more recent papers, however, electrons play a new important role in the shock dynamics and thermodynamics, especially at the solar-wind termination shock. They react on the shock electric field in a very specific way, leading todoi:10.1051/0004-6361/201525710 fatcat:ks6dqz4tengxlnky6xkanxcdx4
