Introduction

Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter we take a short tour through the history of plasma physics and make the reader acquainted with natural plasmas on the grand scale of the solar system, cold plasmas on the small scale of discharges, and with the hottest plasmas produced by man in experiments on controlled nuclear fusion.
