Magnetic reconnection and turbulence in space, laboratory and astrophysical systems
Magnetic reconnection and turbulence in space, laboratory and astrophysical systems
Editor(s): G. Lapenta, A. Lazarian, T. Intrator, J. Sears, and R. Grimshaw
Magnetized plasmas are frequently turbulent in astrophysical systems, as well as in space and laboratory. The turbulence is known to change many properties of fluids, in particular their transport properties. Does it change the properties of magnetic reconnection? What is the back reaction of magnetic reconnection on turbulence in magnetized plasmas? These two interrelated questions are the focus of the proposed special issue. We aim at creating a forum of experts to summarize the recent significant advances in both the field of turbulence and magnetic reconnection and provide the forum for discussing new directions.
