'... 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
This is a textbook on theoretical plasma physics, which is the science of extremely hot gases which make up most of the universe and which are used extensively in fusion energy research. This book treats a topic at the heart of this subject, so-called transport theory, which predicts the electrical and thermal properties of the plasma. It is the most comprehensive book in its field, and is directed at graduate students in physics and professional research physicists, in particular fusion energy scientists and space physicists.
