This project aims at basic research in order to extend the theory of modes of plasma-cathode interaction in a non-stationary and its experimental validation. This is a multidisciplinary task that requires the use of methods of physics and chemistry of plasmas, theory of heat conduction, hydrodynamics, kinetic theory, bifurcation theory, as well as advanced methods of numerical modeling methods and experimental plasma physics.
