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.

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.

The book presents the fundamentals and applications of plasma physics. The emphasis is on high-temperature plasma physics in which the plasma is nearly fully ionized. The level is suitable for senior undergraduates, graduates and researchers.
