Bridging kinetic plasma descriptions and single fluid models

Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to bridge kinetic plasma descriptions and low frequency single fluid models. More specifically, the asymptotics leading to Magneto-Hydro-Dynamic (MHD) regimes starting from the Vlasov-Maxwell system are investigated. The analogy with the derivation, from the Vlasov-Poisson system, of a fluid representation for the ions coupled to the Boltzmann relation for electrons is also outlined. The aim is to identify asymptotic parameters explaining the transitions from one microscopic description to a macroscopic low frequency model. These investigations provide ground work for the derivation of multi-scale numerical methods, model coupling or physics based preconditioning.
