Relation of the Plasma Kinetic Equation for the Darwin Hamiltonian to the Relativistic Landau Equation
Abstract
The connection between the twoparticle ring term for the kinetic equation with Darwin interaction and the (vc)^{2} approximation of the relativistic Landau equation is demonstrated. It is suggested that for practical calculations of (vc)^{2} corrections, an equation (with cutoffs) given might be used instead of the more complete kinetic equation (with ringsum term and without cutoffs) derived recently.
