The Start-up of Tokamaks and the Tokamak Start-up
Since I’m not a native speaker of English, I had to look for the exact meaning of “to start up” in a Dictionary. Webster’s new Twentieth Century Dictionary gives two meanings: (1) “to come into being”, and (2) “to cause (something) to begin running”. In the present case the topic of this meeting could be interpreted either as the startup of tokamaks or the startup of the discharge in a tokamak. I assume that the other speakers will take care of the second meaning so I will start with the first. I want to talk about things which, I believe, are not totally well known to this audience and which I hope will be of some interest to you.
