Editorial Reviews

Review

It's a fine text, and I use it with my graduate students as a tutorial text in my laboratory research.
- Professor Christopher Watts

This is a revised and extended version of a book that has already proved its value as an advanced text at the postgraduate level. It contains a careful account of many of the properties of waves using the various possible levels of approach, and a good selection of graphs and surface plots that are a great help to the reader in visualizing the behavior of wave dispersion relations … . Any student who masters the material in this book and works through the problems it contains will have a very solid grounding in the theory of wave propagation. Research workers in the field will find it to be a comprehensive source of information on waves, including a number of topics that have only been found in research papers until now. I think this is a very welcome addition to the literature, which will be a valuable resource for teachers and researchers … . Swanson's book is certainly worth a place on the bookshelves of anyone who needs to know about plasma waves.
-R.A. Cairns in Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

This is a very good book, I'm an electric engineer with basic formation in plasma physics, even thought this book was very comfortable to read since the author uses SI units and pretty standard nomenclature, which is not the case for other plasma waves books!
It's a shame however that the problems are few and lots of them have no answer at all at the end of the book. Also a CD with the figures would be great.
