Suppressed effective viscosity in the bulk intergalactic plasma

Abstract:

Transport properties, such as viscosity and thermal conduction, of the hot intergalactic plasma in clusters of galaxies are largely unknown. Whereas for laboratory plasmas these characteristics are derived from the gas density and temperature1, such recipes can be fundamentally different for the intergalactic plasma2 owing to a low rate of particle collisions and a weak magnetic field3. In numerical simulations, these unknowns can often be avoided by modell...
