Below is the

I plan to inter-mix these installments with other
blog-entries, including the planned additional

**F**.**.**__E__**. Vignettes, other**__D__**F**.**.**__E__**. news, my own blog-essays, etc.**__D__Links to the earlier versions of these introductory documents are given below.

Unlike the typical blog-entry, this series will attempt to deliver an introduction to [in this case, to the

*The Nonlinearity Breakthrough
*

##
*and the Fusion
Breakthrough*.

The prospect of fusion power epitomizes the vast scientific, industrial-technological, and social benefits — potentially

*human**-*, and

**social progress re**-**igniting**

*human**-*— of a

**species**-**continuation**-**enabling****.**

*Nonlinearity Breakthrough***.**

__Hypothesis__**A “closed-form”’, global solution of the “highly-nonlinear” Maxwell-Boltzmann-Vlasov plasma equation should enable direct computation of control-parameter-values corresponding to self-sustaining nuclear fusion reaction regimes, while also providing other physical / engineering insights, all leading rapidly to the design and construction of commercially**

**-competitive fusion power reactors, utilizing low-radioactivity or ‘no-radioactivity’, virtually pollution-less fuel cycles [e.g., the**

__super__*Hydrogen-*fuel-regime].

Consider the intensely

*‘*

__auto__-kinesic*’*,

**character of a “plasma” --**

__nonlinear__
“A

*plasma*is a gas of charged particles, in which the**energy of a typical particle due to its nearest neighbor is much smaller than its***potential***energy.”***kinetic*
“The

*plasma state*[also termed**—***plasma*__phase__**F**.**.**__E__**.] is the fourth state of matter: heating a solid makes a liquid, heating a liquid makes a gas, heating a gas makes a plasma. (Compare the ancient Greeks’ earth, water, air, and fire).”**__D__
“The
word plasma comes from the Greek

*plásma*, meaning “something formed or molded.”
It was
introduced to describe ionized gases by Tonks and Langmuir [in a

**1929**paper —**F**.**.**__E__**.].**__D__
More
than 99% of the known [M.D.: visible, e.g., excluding "Dark Matter", and "Dark Energy"] universe is in the plasma state.”

[Dwight R. Nicholson,

*» “particles” just described continually, dynamically generates a*

*magneto-*field of forces.

__dynamical__The locations and concentrations of the electric charges of these “particles”, changing moment by moment, due to that same motion, also continually change the «

The «

**plásma**Those “particles” changing positions/

“The field. . .is termed ads “self-consistent”.”

“It is determined by the distribution of particles and in
turn influences their motion . . ..”

-- and --

“This thesis investigates self-consistent electrostatic
structures in plasmas and related collective systems. “

“They are coherent structures in which particles become
trapped in the wave potential.”

“These phenomena require a kinetic description i.e. a description
in which the velocity distribution of the particles is taken into account.”

“Trapping structures extend the areas in configuration space
in which a plasma is unstable.”

“The main argument and result of this work is that there
exist certain kinds of perturbations of an equilibrium that can destabilize the
plasma, even if linear theory predicts stability.”

“The usual procedure in plasma theory of analyzing the
stability of a plasma by means of a linearization of the equations is therefore
questioned.”

Plasmas and other Collective Systems”, http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/5306782?q=subject%3A%22plasma+instability%22&c=book&versionId=6172546

This design hypothesis is based
upon the propensity or proneness of

*‘‘‘**flowing media**’’’*, or*‘‘‘***rheids***’’’*— whether they be the » electro-neutral liquid or gaseous*‘‘***rheids***’’’**described by the [**] Navier-Stokes system of equations, or the electrically-charged, ‘electro-magneto-active’ and ‘electro-magneto-*__nonlinear____self__*-*active’ «*»***plásma***‘‘***rheids***’’’*described by the [*] Maxwell-Boltzmann-Vlasov [vector-]equation(s), by the Klimontovich equation, and by the Liouville equation — to “spontaneously” generate, i.e., to*__nonlinear__*‘*__self__*-*generate’,*‘‘‘*__cyclonic__*’’’*[and*‘‘‘*__anti__*-*], or ‘‘‘self-re-entering’’’,**cyclonic**’’’*:***vortices***‘‘‘*__toroidal__**vortices***’’’*.

This conjecture is depicted below.

In the above-depicted hypothesized

*nonlinear self**-*of the «**consistent motion***», fresh fusion fuel is injected at the base of the ‘«***plásma***» cyclone’, then ‘vortically’ conveyed up the ‘eye chimney’ of that ‘cyclonic «***plásma***» vortex’, and concentrated maximally, umbilicoid-like, at the ‘‘‘heart’’’ of that ‘eye chimney’ -- approximately half-way up that ‘eye chimney’ -- by «***plásma***»-borne ‘electro-magneto-dynamic’ fields, stronger than any solid-state -- e.g., metal -- magnetic field coils and/or electrodes, could source, without themselves being converted to a molten liquid phase, to a vaporized gaseous phase, or even to an ionized «***plásma***» phase, thus with sufficient field-strength to overcome the Coulomb mutual repulsion of the fusion fuel nuclei, thereby bringing these nuclei into a proximity sufficient to ignite, and to continuously sustain the ignition of, the fusion reaction, thence continually, ‘vortically’ conveying the fusion reaction products up and out of the top of the ‘eye chimney’ for removal, in a continuous toroidal motion, the motion of a «***plásma***»-constituted torus ‘rolling upon itself’.***plásma**
