Developing the physical kinetics of plasma turbulence through a focus on quasi-particle models and dynamics, this volume will interest researchers and graduate students in plasma physics. It discusses essential physics concepts and theoretical methods for weak and strong fluid and phase space turbulence in plasma systems far from equilibrium.
