Fundamentals of Plasma Physics
by James D. Callen
Publisher: University of Wisconsin, 2006
The primary objective of this book is to present and develop the fundamentals and principal applications of plasma physics. The emphasis is on high-temperature plasma physics in which the plasma is nearly fully ionized and neutral particles have small effects on the plasma behavior. The level is suitable for senior undergraduate students through advanced graduate students and active researchers.

These notes lay the foundations for the interpretation of magnetic fields and fluxes in terms of equilibrium plasma parameters. 'Magnetic diagnostics' means those diagnostics which are used to measure magnetic fields and fluxes using induction coils.

The course is intended only as a first plasma physics course, but includes the critical concepts needed for a foundation for further study. A solid undergraduate background in classical physics and electromagnetic theory are prerequisites.

Line-shape analysis is one of the most important tools for diagnostics of both laboratory and space plasmas. Its implementation requires accurate calculations, which imply the use of analytic methods and computer codes of varying complexity.

We review progress in the theory and simulation of fast electron transport in the context of Fast Ignition. Important aspects of the basic plasma physics, descriptions of the numerical methods, a review of ignition-scale simulations are included.
