Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Plasma physics is an extremely complex field. This book provides just what the title says, in a manner accessible to an experience engineer or scientists outside the plasma physics field. This accomplishment is uncommon in all fields, and very rare in plasma physics. In fact, this is the only book I've found that gives me, as an electrical engineer, what I need in this area. Kudos to the authors. You did a great job.
