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

Emphasizing basic plasma theory, with applications to both space and laboratory plasmas, the topics covered in this text include single-particle motions, kinetic theory, magnetohydrodynamics, small amplitude waves in both cold and hot plasmas, nonlinear phenomena and collisional effects. Applications comprise 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.

Review:

"Well produced, with essential references and advice for supplemental reading, the book is illustrated with line drawings and has a fairly complete index. Besides being a course resource, the book forms a useful reference for working plasma physicists and can be recommended to both types of user. Highly recommended." CHOICE

"...engaging text, clear and accessible to advanced undergraduates...This text has perhaps the best introduction to ideal MHD waves." - American Journal of Physics, Daniel V. Schroeder, Weber State University
