About the Authors
  • Here is a text on theoretical plasma physics, the science of extremely hot gases which make up most of the universe and are used extensively in fusion energy research. The authors treat a topic at the heart of this subject, transport theory, which predicts the electrical and thermal properties of the plasma. This comprehensive book is directed at graduate students in physics and professional research physicists, in particular, fusion energy scientists and space physicists.

    • Comprehensive and systematic introduction to plasma collisional transport theory
    • Includes detailed mathematical development of widely used transport coefficients and transport equations, for the interested theorist as well as the experimental fusion plasma physicist
    • Includes advances in neoclassical theory, and a discussion of experimental verifications of neoclassical theory in existing tokamak experiments

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… invaluable for space-plasma and astrophysical theorists who have a background knowledge of plasma theory and who wish to understand an important strand of laboratory theory that will have vital implications in future for their fields.' Eric Priest, The Observatory

    'It is a very welcome addition, indeed asset, to the subject.' Journal of Plasma Physics

    'It seems that the authors know how to build a bridge between a manual and a research book. This monograph will be useful to advanced graduate students and scientists that are working in plasma physics.' Zentralblatt MATH
