Abstract

Fully covariant hydrodynamical equations for a multispecies relativistic plasma in an external electromagnetic field are derived. The derived multifluid description takes into account binary Coulomb collisions, annihilation, and interaction with the photon background in terms of the invariant collision cross sections. A generalized Ohm’s law is derived in a manifestly covariant form. Particular attention is devoted to the relativistic electron-positron plasma.
