Review
"I have been teaching Introductory Plasma Physics to senior undergraduates and beginning graduate students for many years, and I find the level of the presentation of material, the order that the topics are presented, and the overall length of the book to be an excellent match for my needs in a textbook." - David Hammer, Cornell University
"The authors have done an excellent job in introducing the vast scope of plasma physics for basic plasma physics courses. The schematic illustrations and flow charts used are especially helpful in understanding the complexities involved in the hierarchal nature of plasmas. Mathematics is kept at just the right level for the intended readers and the descriptions of the physical processes are clear. Although this book is targeted to advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students, it will be a good addition to the personal library of every plasma physicist." - Gurudas Ganguli, Naval Research Laboratory
"This new book provides an excellent summary of the basic processes occurring in plasmas together with a comprehensive introduction to the mathematical formulation of fluid (MHD) and kinetic theory. It provides an excellent introduction to the subject suitable for senior undergraduate students or entry-level graduate students." - Richard M. Thorne, University of California at Los Angeles
Book Description
This unified introduction provides the tools and techniques needed to analyze plasmas and connects plasma phenomena to other fields of study. Combining mathematical rigor with qualitative explanations, and linking theory to practice with example problems, this is a perfect textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate students taking one-semester introductory courses.
