    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Landau damping in plasmas of equal ion and electron temperatures (alkali plasmas) may prevent the formation of a shock. Shocks are produced when the ratio Te/Ti is increased to about 8 or so by cooling the ions through i-n collisions.
