Anomalous resistance of the fractal current-carrying corona of Z-pinch. (English) Zbl 0986.76099
Summary: We consider the effect of random plasma inhomogeneity on the scenario of ion-acoustic anomalous resistivity. It is shown that such an inhomogeneity could be more efficient than nonlinear effects to determine the turbulent resistivity. In application to $$Z$$-pinches, we examine some peculiarities of skin-effect, in particular, subsequent inhomogeneity of current penetration into the conducting medium.
