Fundamentals of Plasma Physics
by

Publisher: University of Wisconsin,

Description:
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.
