DUBLIN--(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xvhg3v/fusion_plasma_phys) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Fusion Plasma Physics" to their offering.)--Research and Markets (
This outstanding textbook as it is not restricted to a solid introduction, but spans the subject from the classical textbook knowledge to more recent developments.
With the investment of the international community in major new projects such as ITER, the area of fusion and plasma physics is at a rapidly changing state in its development. The interest in nuclear fusion is rising, and references in nuclear fusion and plasma physics are critically needed.
This book is a very comprehensive introduction to fusion plasma physics and covers not only the basic theory and historical applications, but also topics relevant to controlled fusion, a potential exploiting future energy resource.
The new edition updates the original book by adding information on alternate concepts. It introduces basic theory of plasmas and relates it to contemporary applications to controlled nuclear fusion. It is a unique contribution to the genre, in that it discusses the practical achievement of controlled fusion.
Written by an author with more than 35 years experience in both research and teaching, this handy reference is suitable for graduate students, post-graduates and also more experienced researchers in the field who wish to learn more about areas of plasma physics and controlled fusion outside their speciality.
Key Topics Covered:
- Basic Physics
- Motion of Charged Particles
- Magnetic Confinement
- Kinetic Theory
- Fluid Theory
- Plasma Equilibria
- Neoclassical Transport
- Plasma Rotation
- Turbulent Transport
- Heating and Current Drive
