Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All papers have been peer-reviewed. The primary focus of this conference was to bring together a range of topics that shed light on our understanding and status of turbulence and nonlinear processes in astrophysical plasmas. The topics discussed included turbulence in the solar corona, the interplanetary medium, in planetary magnetosheaths, in the ionosphere, the heliosheath, the interstellar medium, turbulence downstream of planetary bow shocks and the heliospheric termination shock, and the transport of cosmic rays in a turbulent medium. Among the issues that excited much interest were the role of anisotropic cascades in magnetic and velocity field fluctuations found in the solar wind and interstellar medium, the role of compressibility in describing interstellar density fluctuations, the interaction of turbulence with shock waves, especially in the context of the recently discovered heliospheric termination shock, the transport and energization of cosmic rays, the role of intermittency and complexity in the solar wind, and even the formation of density holes observed in the solar wind. Other topics that attracted considerable interest, and that are reflected in the articles contained in these Proceedings, were turbulent relaxation in laboratory and space plasmas and its application to coronal flux tubes, coronal heating, and the diffusion of energetic particles.
