Plasma Physics and Fusion Plasma Electrodynamics

Abraham Bers


This book covers collective and single particle dynamics of plasmas for fully ionized as well as partially ionized plasmas. Many aspects of plasma physics in current fusion energy generation research are addressed both in magnetic and inertial confinement plasmas. Linear and nonlinear dynamics in hydrodynamic and kinetic descriptions are exposed so that readers are faced with the simple and complex aspects of the subject in nearly every chapter. The approach of dividing the basic aspects of plasma physics as linear, hydrodynamic descriptions to be covered first and postponing the nonlinear and ... More

Keywords: collective particle dynamics, single particle dynamics, fully ionized plasmas, partially ionized plasmas, magnetic plasmas, inertial confinement plasmas
