Plasma Physics Winter School

From January 3-7, more than 30 graduate students and post-docs from the US and Europe gathered at UCLA for a full week of advanced lectures in plasma physics, followed by a week-long workshop on multiscale plasma physics at IPAM. Here are a few pictures from the first week.

Winter School lectures were held in the seminar room on the fourth floor of UCLA's new Physics and Astronomy Building (shown above).
