First ICTP-NCP International College on Plasma Physics, 11-15 November 2013
The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy is organizing its regional activity “First ICTP-NCP International College on Plasma Physics” in collaboration with the National Centre for Physics (NCP), Islamabad, Pakistan.
The ICTP has expanded its scientific activities in may different direction since its inception in 1964; arranging academic activities in different developing countries to promote research and regional cooperation in science and technology is one very welcome addition.
The National Centre for Physics (NCP), the ICTP partner for this activity, was, itself, established on the lines of ICTP; its organizes several scientific activities including conferences, workshops and lectures of eminent scientists every year.
Plasma physics, dealing with charged fluids interacting with long range electromagnetic forces giving rise to instabilities, nonlinearities and turbulance, is a highly complex science. Its domain of applicability is very fast:
- Dynamics of high density plasmas of white dwarf and neutron stars, made interesting and complicated by quantum effects
- The solid state and low density low temperature plasmas for their importance in industry
- Plasmas in space, astrophysics (stars galaxies, cosmology)
- Thermonuclear fusion, with a promise to create a limitless source of clean nuclear power
