Born of a number of parent fields and the exigencies of the space age, ion flow dynamics is the newest branch of fluid dynamics, known as magnetohydrodynamics, with far-reaching applications in aerospace science, nuclear propulsion, and nuclear production. This book is devoted exclusively to the component theories and formulae of ion flow dynamics and the decade of new work that followed its writing has been proven totally reliable, accurate, and in many areas even prophetic. The discussion of ion flow begins with the generation, thermodynamics, and equations of ion flows ( with derivations and solutions) and relativistic effects. It then continues through the transport properties, mobility, viscosity, diffusion, electrical and heat conduction; steady and unsteady plasma flows, of one and two dimensions in high and low density; and concludes with the various types of discontinuities, such as magnetic shock and detonation waves in magnetic and flow turbulence, and with the various types of wave propagation, oscillation, and resonance phenomena. Problems to check comprehension and reference lists for more detailed study of the subject are given at chapter end. Enlarged republication of original edition. New Preface and special section of Notes. Numerous figures and tables throughout, Four Appendices.
