Title: A THERMODYNAMIC APPROACH TO THE MAGNETOSPHERIC COMPLEXITY: THE ROLE OF FLUCTUATIONS
Title of journal: Space Science Reviews
Series/Report no.: /122(2006)
Issue Date: 2006
Keywords: Earth’s magnetosphere,
thermodynamics
Abstract: Recent studies evidenced that the magnetotail dynamics looks like the one of an avalanching system. This fact has been related with a near criticality dynamics and modelled by singular diffusion and transport equations. Here, we discuss some features of the Earth’s magnetotail dynamics using a thermodynamic approach. In detailwediscuss the role played by fluctuations in singular diffusion and relaxation processes from a non-equilibrium thermodynamics point of view. Moreover, the emergence of non-Gaussian statistics is discussed in the framework of the thermodynamics of composite systems.
