Review

“This is one of the present standard textbooks on fundamentals of modern plasma physics. The book contains exercises to control the newly obtained knowledge. A list of books for further reading and an index of scientific keywords are given at the end of the work. The book is of interest for both graduate and advanced undergraduate students in physics, especially plasma physics and astrophysics and related engineering.”
—Claudia-Veronika Meister (Potsdam)

This is one of the present standard textbooks on fundamentals of modern plasma physics. The book contains exercises to control the newly obtained knowledge. A list of books for further reading and an index of scientific keywords are given at the end of the work. Two disks with computer programs in Macintosh and MS Windows format on area-preserving maps and Hamiltonian chaos are added. The book is of interest for both graduate and advanced undergraduate students in physics, especially plasma physics and astrophysics and related engineering.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book can be very useful as a graduate level plasma text, or a reference, or as something to put on your shelf to make you look like a "serious" plasma physicist. It covers drifts extremely well and I was reasonably pleased with the two fluid model. But in the end if you are trying to learn plasma physics this book really shines as a SUPPLEMENT and I imagine would be pretty frustrating as your only source to learn from. I bought this book and Chen's book for my graduate plasma 1 course. I never opened Chen, referenced Goldston often throughout the course (and as expected put a lot of focus on the class notes). But honestly, I think you probably already know if you need this book.

Format: Paperback
I am a university student who major in physics. and this book was a text in plasma course. As plasma group of princeton univ. is strong, this book is strong enough to understand plasma. most favorite thing in this book is sufficient explanation about the physical and mathmatical explanation. and the not good thing is a little dirty mathmatical calculation. so if you want clear mathmatics, I think you had better look another book. Anyway if you read this from cover to cover, you can learn ABC of Plasma. isn't it wonderful?

Good introductory book to understand the basics of plasma physics, plasma waves, and plasma instabilities such as Rayleigh-Taylor and drift waves.
A note to publishers: Clarity of printing not good in some pages
