2000**Number of pages**: 358

**Description**:

Primary objective of this lecture note is to provide a basic text for the students to study plasma physics and controlled fusion researches. Secondary objective is to offer a reference book describing analytical methods of plasma physics for the researchers. This was written based on lecture notes for a graduate course and an advanced undergraduate course that have been offered at Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, University of Tokyo.
