About this book

Introduction

Plasma Physics - Basic Theory with Fusion Applications presents a thorough treatment of plasma physics, beginning at an introductory level and including an extensive discussion of its applications in thermonuclear fusion research. The physics of fusion plasmas is explained mainly in relation to recent progress in tokamak research, but other plasma confinement schemes, such as stellarators and inertial confinement, are alsodescribed. The unique and systematic presentation will help readers to understand the overall structure of plasma theory and will faciliate access to more advanced literature on specialist topics. Numerous problems will assist the students in mastering the text.
