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.
