Developed from the lectures of a leading expert in plasma wave research, Plasma Kinetic Theory provides the essential material for an introductory course on plasma physics as well as the basis for a more advanced course on kinetic theory. Exploring various wave phenomena in plasmas, it offers...

Controlled Fusion and Plasma Physics

Controlled Fusion and Plasma Physics

Kenro Miyamoto
October 23, 2006

Resulting from ongoing, international research into fusion processes, the International Tokamak Experimental Reactor (ITER) is a major step in the quest for a new energy source.The first graduate-level text to cover the details of ITER, Controlled Fusion and Plasma Physics introduces various...

An Introduction to Inertial Confinement Fusion

An Introduction to Inertial Confinement Fusion

Susanne Pfalzner
March 02, 2006

Newcomers to the field of inertial confinement fusion (ICF) often have difficulty establishing a clear picture of the overall field. The reason for this is because, while there are many books devoted to special topics within the field, there is none that provides an overview of the field as a whole...

Aspects of Anomalous Transport in Plasmas

Aspects of Anomalous Transport in Plasmas

Radu Balescu
April 01, 2005

Anomalous transport is a ubiquitous phenomenon in astrophysical, geophysical and laboratory plasmas; and is a key topic in controlled nuclear fusion research. Despite its fundamental importance and ongoing research interest, a full understanding of anomalous transport in plasmas is still incomplete...
