Physics of Plasmas
Electron parallel closures for the ion charge number Z = 1 [J.-Y. Ji and E. D. Held, Phys. Plasmas 21, 122116 (2014)] are extended for 1 ≤ Z ≤ 10. Parameters are computed for various Z with the same form of the Z = 1 kernels adopted. The parameters are smoothly varying in Z and hence can be used to interpolate parameters and closures for noninteger, effective ion charge numbers.
