Plasma Physics

Magnetohydrodynamic Stability of Tokamaks (1st Edition)

This book bridges the gap between general plasma physics lectures and the real world problems in MHD stability. In order to support the understanding of concepts and their implication, it refers to real world problems such as toroidal mode coupling or nonlinear evolution in a conceptual and phenomenological approach. Detailed ma...

Extreme States of Matter: High Energy Density Physics (2nd ed.)

With its many beautiful colour pictures, this book gives fascinating insights into the unusual forms and behaviour of matter under extremely high pressures and temperatures. These extreme states are generated, among other things, by strong shock, detonation and electric explosion waves, dense laser beams, electron and ion beams,...

Fundamental Aspects of Plasma Chemical Physics: Kinetics (1st Edition)

Describing non-equilibrium "cold" plasmas through a chemical physics approach, this book uses the state-to-state plasma kinetics, which considers each internal state as a new species with its own cross sections. Extended atomic and molecular master equations are coupled with Boltzmann and Monte Carlo methods to solve the electro...

Magnetic Reconnection: Concepts and Applications (1st Edition)

This book provides an overview of recent research highlights in the main areas of application of magnetic reconnection (MR), including planetary, solar and magnetospheric physics and astrophysics. It describes how research on magnetic reconnection, especially concerning the Earth's magnetosphere, has grown extensively due to ded...

Modern Methods in Collisional-Radiative Modeling of Plasmas (1st Edition)

This book provides a compact yet comprehensive overview of recent developments in collisional-radiative (CR) modeling of laboratory and astrophysical plasmas. It describes advances across the entire field, from basic considerations of model completeness to validation and verification of CR models to calculation of plasma kinetic...

Cluster ion-solid interactions : theory, simulation, and experiment

The main goal of this book is therefore to provide the reader with an overview of various concepts in cluster physics and related topics in physics, and is based on lecture courses given by the author to undergraduate and graduate students at Kyoto University (Japan), to nuclear engineering students at Purdue University (USA), a...

Plasma Physics for Controlled Fusion (2nd Edition)

This new edition presents the essential theoretical and analytical methods needed to understand the recent fusion research of tokamak and alternate approaches. The author describes magnetohydrodynamic and kinetic theories of cold and hot plasmas in detail. The book covers new important topics for fusion studies such as plasma tr...
