Asymptotic Theory of Solar Wind Electrons
ASTROPHYSICAL JOURNAL, 2015.
This paper presents a theory for the asymptotically steady-state solar wind electron velocity distribution function (VDF) in a local equilibrium with plasma wave turbulence. By treating the local solar wind electron VDF as a superposition of three populations-the low-energy Maxwellian core electrons with an energy range of. tens of eV, th...More
