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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : David Sundkvist; Jan-Erik Wahlund; Andris Vaivads; Stuart Bale; [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

    Abstract : This thesis addresses solitary waves and their significance for auroral particle acceleration, coronal heating and incoherent scatter radar spectra. Solitary waves are formed due to a balance of nonlinear and dispersive effects. READ MORE

  3. 3. The importance of waves in space plasmas Examples from the auroral region and the magnetopause

    University dissertation from Umeå : Fysik

    Author : Gabriella Stenberg; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Space and plasma physics; Plasma waves; magnetospheric physics; magnetopause; auroral region; wave distribution function; space exploration; reconnection; current tubes; Rymd- och plasmafysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Geocosmophysics and plasma physics Space physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Geokosmofysik och plasmafysik Rymdfysik; rymdfysik; Space Physics;

    Abstract : This thesis discusses the reasons for space exploration and space science. Space plasma physics is identified as an essential building block to understand the space environment and it is argued that observation and analysis of space plasma waves is an important approach.Space plasma waves are the main actors in many important processes.

  4. 4. Explorations of University Physics in Abstract Contexts From de Sitter Space to Learning Space

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Daniel Domert; Cedric Linder; Ulf Danielsson; Duncan Fraser; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physics; phenomenography; cosmology; de Sitter space; quantum mechanics; conceptual understanding; epistemology; physics equations; Fysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : This is a thesis which contributes to research in two different fields: theoretical physics and physics education research. The common link between these two research areas is that both involve explorations of abstract physics and mathematical representations, but from different perspectives. READ MORE
