Boltzmann equation and Monte Carlo analysis of the spatiotemporal electron relaxation in nonisothermal plasmas
European Physical Journal : Applied physics
The spatiotemporal relaxation of electrons in spatially one-dimensional plasmas acted upon by electric fields is investigated on the basis of the space-and time-dependent electron Boltzmann equation. The relaxation process is treated using the two-term approximation of an expansion of the electron velocity distribution function in Legendre polynomials. To verify the complex Boltzmann equation approach by a completely independent kinetic method, results for inhomogeneous column-anode plasmas ofdoi:10.1051/epjap:2002040 fatcat:efqfbsfmvjephgn7i7lrhery5y
