Abstract : This Report contains a review of recent publications on certain aspects of the interaction of plasmas, especially at high densities, with electric, magnetic and fluid-dynamic fields. The discussions refer in particular to theoretical and experimental studies of electric arcs. The Report is subdivided into two parts: (1) dealing with the phenomenology and description of thermal arcs; (2) dealing with the phenomenology of - and existing models and analyses, as well as interpretations of the observational results, for the interaction of arcs and magnetic fields. Principles of modern application are also discussed. (Author)
