Download Introduction to Plasma Physics: With Space and Laboratory by D. A. Gurnett,A. Bhattacharjee PDF

By D. A. Gurnett,A. Bhattacharjee

The emphasis of this article is on easy plasma concept, with functions to either area and laboratory plasmas. All mathematical suggestions past these ordinarily lined in a sophisticated calculus direction are totally defined. themes coated contain single-particle motions, kinetic concept, magnetohydrodynamics, small amplitude waves in either cold and warm plasmas, nonlinear phenomena and collisional results. functions contain planetary magnetospheres and radiation belts, the confinement and balance of plasmas in fusion units, the propagation of discontinuities and surprise waves within the sunlight wind, and the research of assorted sorts of plasma waves and instabilities which may ensue in planetary magnetospheres and laboratory plasma units. This ebook is established as a textual content for a one- or two-semester introductory path in plasma physics on the complex undergraduate or first-year graduate point. it may well additionally function a source publication at the easy ideas of plasma physics.
