Introduction to Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion : Plasma Physics, Volume I - 2nd edition

Introduction to Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion : Plasma Physics, Volume I (ISBN10: 0306413329; ISBN13: 9780306413322)
ISBN13: 978-0306413322
ISBN10: 0306413329

Summary: This complete introduction to plasma physics and controlled fusion by one of the pioneering scientists in this expanding field offers both a simple and intuitive discussion of the basic concepts of this subject and an insight into the challenging problems of current research. In a wholly lucid manner the work covers single-particle motions, fluid equations for plasmas, wave motions, diffusion and resistivity, Landau damping, plasma instabilities and nonlinear problem
s. For students, this outstanding text offers a painless introduction to this important field; for teachers, a large collection of problems; and for researchers, a concise review of the fundamentals as well as original treatments of a number of topics never before explained so clearly. This revised edition contains new material on kinetic effects, including Bernstein waves and the plasma dispersion function, and on nonlinear wave equations and solitons.
