DEVELOPMENT OF MULTI-COORDINATE VOCABULARY, PLASMA PHYSICS.
LERNER, RITA G.
DESCRIBED IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A THESAURUS FOR THE FIELD OF PLASMA PHYSICS, SIMILAR TO THE ONE PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED FOR CHEMICAL PHYSICS, FOR USE WITH COMPUTER-ORIENTED RETRIEVAL SYSTEMS. AN EXPERT IN THE FIELD OF PLASMA PHYSICS SELECTED TERMS IMPORTANT TO THE INFORMATION USER FROM THE PLASMA LITERATURE. THE HIERARCHY OF CLASSIFICATION UTILIZES FOUR MAIN CATEGORIES--(1) PROPERTIES, (2) PHENOMENA, (3) OBJECTS, AND (4) METHODS. THE OBJECTS AND METHODS CATEGORIES ARE HIERARCHICALLY ARRANGED. THE OBJECTS CATEGORY INCLUDES (1) PLASMAS AND MODELS OF PLASMAS, (2) ASTROPHYSICAL AND GEOPHYSICAL OBJECTS, (3) THERMONUCLEAR CONTAINMENT SCHEMES, AND (4) OTHER TECHNICAL APPLICATIONS AND EXPERIMENTAL DEVICES. THE METHODS CATEGORY HAS FIVE SUBDIVISIONS--(1) THEORETICAL--EQUATIONS, (2) THEORETICAL--SPECIAL SOLUTION TECHNIQUES, (3) EXPERIMENTAL--MEASUREMENTS, (4) EXPERIMENTAL--TECHNIQUES, AND (5) EXPERIMENTAL--DEVICES. THE VOCABULARY WAS SUBMITTED TO MEMBERS OF THE DIVISION OF PLASMA PHYSICS OF THE AMERICAN PHYSICAL SOCIETY FOR DISCUSSION, SUGGESTIONS, AND REVISIONS. THE VOCABULARY IS GIVEN IN APPENDIX A OF THE REPORT AND IS APPLIED TO EXAMPLES OF INDEXED JOURNAL ARTICLES IN APPENDIX B. (DH)
