36) X1 contains the unknown function fkl . 36) for distribution function fk is not closed. We have to find the equation for the correlation function fkl . This will be done in the next Section. 3. 3 31 Equations for correlation functions To derive the equations for correlation functions (in the first place for the function of pair correlations fkl ), it is not necessary to introduce any new postulates or develop new formalisms. All the necessary equations and averaging procedures are at hand. e. the function ϕˆk = fˆk − fk .

4. 49) ρ + div j = 0 . ∂t Thus Maxwell’s equations conform to the charge continuity equation. 1 ] Starting from Maxwell’s equation, derive the energy conservation law for an electromagnetic field. Answer. 25) multiplied by the magnetic field vector B. The result is 4π 1 ∂E 1 ∂B E + B =− j E − ( B curl E − E curl B ) . c ∂t c ∂t c By using the known formula from vector analysis div [ a × b ] = b curl a − a curl b , we rewrite the last equation as follows 4π 1 ∂ E2 + B2 = − j E − div [ E × B ] 2c ∂t c or ∂ W = −j E − div G .

Weakly-Coupled Systems Let us consider the particles of two kinds – electrons and ions, assuming the ions to be motionless and homogeneously distributed. Then the ions do not take part in any kinetic processes; hence ϕˆ i ≡ 0 for ions and the correlation functions associated with ϕˆ i equal zero as well: f ii = 0 , fei = 0 etc. 20) Among the pair correlation functions, only one has a non-zero magnitude fee (X1 , X2 ) = f (X1 , X2 ) . 19) as follows v1 ∂f ∂f + v2 = ∂ r1 ∂ r2 1 [ v1 · F (X1 , X3 ) f (X3 , X2 ) fe (v1 ) + = kB T X3 + v2 · F (X2 , X3 ) f (X1 , X3 ) fe (v2 ) ] dX3 .
