The proceedings of the Seventh Workshop on the Physics of Dusty of Plasmas contains a collection of papers that provide a "snapshot" of this rapidly expanding field and is perhaps the fastest growing area of plasma physics studies with a surprisingly wide range of applications. At this workshop, over fifty participants presented theoretical and experimental investigations of dust charging, waves and instabilities, laboratory and industrial plasmas, strongly coupled systems, astrophysical, space, and atmospheric plasmas.

Editorial Reviews

The 37 papers examine multi-component plasmas that, in addition to electrons and ions, contain macroscopic charge carriers such as large molecules, molecular clusters, or flakes of material shaken from the walls of fusion energy experiments. They report new results, laboratory experiments now in progress, numerical simulations, and theoretical approaches in dust charging; waves and instabilities; laboratory and industrial plasmas; strongly coupled systems; and astrophysical, space, and atmospheric plasmas. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
