    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; general relativity; cosmology; gravitational waves; plasma; electromagnetic waves; nonlinear waves; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Geocosmophysics and plasma physics Plasma physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Geokosmofysik och plasmafysik Plasmafysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Other physics Theory of relativity; gravitation; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Övrig fysik Relativitetsteori; gravitation; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Astronomy and astrophysics Cosmology; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Astronomi och astrofysik Kosmologi; teoretisk fysik; Theoretical Physics;

    Abstract : Gravitational perturbations can be in the form of scalars, vectors or tensors. This thesis focuses on the evolution of scalar perturbations in cosmology, and interactions between tensor perturbations, in the form of gravitational waves, and plasma waves. READ MORE

  3. 3. Space Plasma Dynamics Instabilities, Coherent Vortices and Covariant Parametrization

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : David Sundkvist; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Space and plasma physics; space physics; plasma; instabilities; turbulence; coherent structures; vortex; self-organization; magnetosphere; waves; electromagnetism; covariant; space instrumentation; Rymd- och plasmafysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Geocosmophysics and plasma physics Space physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Geokosmofysik och plasmafysik Rymdfysik;

    Abstract : The magnetospheric cusps are two funnel-like regions of Earth's magnetosphere where solar wind plasma can have direct access to the ionosphere. The cusps are very dynamic regions where wave-particle interactions continuously take place and redistribute energy among different particle populations. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Polar Cusp and its Ionospheric footprint : Dynamics and Transients

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis
