Reconnection in Realistic Astrophysical Settings: Turbulent Fluids and Partially Ionized Gas
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 2241 Chamberlin hall
Speaker: Alex Lazarian
Abstract: I shall explain why turbulent reconnection is the most natural setting for the astrophysical reconnection. The turbulence can be pre-existing
or induced by the reconnection itself. I shall provide a comparison of the domains of the applicability of the turbulent and tearing reconnection.
Finally, I shall discuss how partial ionization modifies the turbulent reconnection and consider the consequences of the reconnection in partially
ionized astrophysical environments.
