Plasma Astrophysics

99% of the visible matter in the universe is in the fourth state, i.e., plasma state.

We are exploring the basic processes in the large scale plasma, which is closely linked to many astrophysical phenomena ranging from our solar system to the early universe.

The field is among the most fast developed ones in theoretical astrophysics for the past two decades.  In particular, the topics we do include charged particles, high-energy cosmic rays, plasma instabilities, magnetohydrodynamic turbulence, reconnection, etc.
