2009 (English)In: New developments in nonlinear plasma physics, American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2009, 280-289 p.Conference paper (Refereed)Text
In this work a recently published semiclassical spin kinetic model, generalizing those of previous authors are discussed. Some previously described properties are reviewed, and a new example illustrating the theory is presented. The generalization to a fully quantum mechanical description is discussed, and the main features of such a theory is outlined. Finally, the main conclusions are presented.
