(Color) The microfield is shown for the three values (green), (purple), and (red). The reduced field is given by .
(Color) Simulation results for the temperature vs time in the inertial phase for three plasmas with (blue pluses), (magenta crosses), and (cyan stars). Also shown are predictions based on alone (solid red) and with contributions (solid green) for the case.
(Color) Temperature evolution as computed with YM-MD (top, blue) and TCP-MD (bottom, red).
(Color) The temperature vs time for three UCPs is shown in panel (a). At intermediate times, strong temperature oscillations appear. Also shown, in panel (b), are the moment ratios and that would be unity for a pure Maxwellian. During the inertial phase there are large deviations from a Maxwellian, but quasiequilibrium distributions occur beyond one plasma period.
(Color) Formation of the pair correlation function (a) and the velocity field (b) at the four times marked in the previous figure. At early time, has a blast-wave character, whereas complete reversal of the current occurs after reaching the peak temperature.
(Color) The evolution of an ultracold plasma subject to a second ionization at two different times. The blue curve corresponds to no second ionization.
