Title: Thermodynamic evaluation of mass diffusion in ionic mixtures

The thermodynamic technique of Landau and Lifshitz originally developed for inter-species diffusion in a binary neutral gas mixture is extended to a quasi-neutral plasma with two ion species. It is shown that, while baro- and electro-diffusion coefficients depend on the choice of the thermodynamic system, prediction for the total diffusive mass flux is invariant.
