Editorial Reviews

Review

Review of the hardback:
"A conscientious and elegantly produced textbook... single-particle orbit theory and linearized waves in unbounded plasma are particularly well done ... A lot can be learned from it. Picking up the text and reading it at random is often rewarding."
D. C. Montgomery, Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics

"Gives an exceptionally lucid and compelling overview of recent progress in this broad branch of physics. The unique organization of the book and straightforward writing style reflect the extensive teaching background of the author ... A welcome addition to the library of both the expert and the newcomer to the field."
Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics

"The book will undoubtedly be valued by those doing postgraduate work in this field, for whom it provides a useful bridge to the scientific literature. It is also highly recommended to researchers looking to widen their horizons to other areas of plasma physics outside their area of expertise."
Zulfikar Najmudin, Times Higher Education Supplement

Book Description

This rigorous explanation of plasmas is relevant to diverse plasma applications such as controlled fusion, astrophysical plasmas, solar physics, magnetospheric plasmas, and plasma thrusters. More thorough than previous texts, it exploits new powerful mathematical techniques to develop deeper insights into plasma behavior. After developing the basic plasma equations from first principles, the author explores a host of essential and advanced topics. Written for beginning graduate students and advanced undergraduates, this text emphasizes the fundamentals that apply across many different contexts, whether in physics, astronomy, space physics, electrical engineering, or aeronautics.

interesting as well as well-organized explanation on plasma physics.

Historical approach would boost your interest on plasma.

Strongly recommend to young physicists.
