9780521364836: Introduction to Plasma Physics: With Space and Laboratory Applications

The emphasis of this text is on basic plasma theory, with applications to both space and laboratory plasmas. All mathematical concepts beyond those normally covered in an advanced calculus course are fully explained. Topics covered include single-particle motions, kinetic theory, magnetohydrodynamics, small amplitude waves in both cold and hot plasmas, nonlinear phenomena and collisional effects. Applications include planetary magnetospheres and radiation belts, the confinement and stability of plasmas in fusion devices, the propagation of discontinuities and shock waves in the solar wind, and the analysis of various types of plasma waves and instabilities that can occur in planetary magnetospheres and laboratory plasma devices. This book is structured as a text for a one- or two-semester introductory course in plasma physics at the advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate level. It can also serve as a resource book on the basic principles of plasma physics.

Recensione:

'… [an] engaging text, clear and accessible … Highly intuitive explanations get right to the point, and careful derivations often include sophisticated yet concise discussions of subtleties. … Some complex topics are described so clearly that they make the reader feel really smart.' American Journal of Physics
