Abstract

Heat pinch phenomena in the plasma with peripheral heating is discussed from the view point of thermodynamics. The entropy production rate associated with inward energy flow in the presence of energy exchange between electrons and ions is calculated. The inward energy flow can increase the total entropy production rate. It is conjectured that the outward energy flow of colder species (say ions) could sustain the energy flux of hotter species (say electrons) in the core, which flows into the direction of higher temperature.
