Editorial Reviews

Review

Review of the hardback: 'The book achieves [its] goal remarkably well ... The most modern and thorough introductory textbook on plasma physics for fusion research that I have seen, providing rigorous mathematical descriptions for most of the concepts. I highly recommend it.' T. J. Dolan, Fusion Science and Technology

Book Description

Based on a series of course notes from graduate courses in plasma physics and fusion energy at MIT, this book discusses the potential role that fusion may play in the future. It will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in applied physics and nuclear engineering.

Format: Hardcover
I have found this book immensely useful and a pleasure to read as a senior undergraduate engaging in summer research in fusion. It is perfect for learning basic plasma physics in the context of fusion, which may not be easy with books that discuss plasma more generally (such as F.F. Chen's introductory book, though that is very good). The writing is highly structured and clear physical pictures are presented.

There is a nice opening section on energy options and where fusion fits in, and there are sections on fusion reactor types and technologies.
