Doing the wrong thing, never felt so right! Faith, a young beautiful woman who has spent her romantic life with Jim (her fiance) feeling ashamed to do or say anything. But during a visit to see Jim's sister, Ella, Faith discovers that Ella's boyfriend has a caring and sensual side that she has yearned for in her life ever since she first met him. And now it might just be Faith's chance to break away from the emotionally abusive relationship she has grown accustom too. But at what cost? This suspenseful, sensual, and very erotic short from author P.S. Anderson takes the reader on a psychological journey that may not be too far fetched for some.
This complete introduction to the use of modern ray tracing techniques in plasma physics describes the powerful mathematical methods generally applicable to vector wave equations in non-uniform media, and clearly demonstrates the application of these methods to simplify and solve important problems in plasma wave theory. Key analytical concepts are carefully introduced as needed, encouraging the development of a visual intuition for the underlying methodology, with more advanced mathematical concepts succinctly explained in the appendices, and supporting Matlab and Raycon code available online. Covering variational principles, covariant formulations, caustics, tunnelling, mode conversion, weak dissipation, wave emission from coherent sources, incoherent wave fields, and collective wave absorption and emission, all within an accessible framework using standard plasma physics notation, this is an invaluable resource for graduate students and researchers in plasma physics.
