Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was looking for an introductory text that was current and that would cover the most popular approaches. I didn't want something directed at the popular level (little or no math), but I also didn't want a text that would go into agonizing analysis of every plasma instability under the sun. There are many fine books on plasma physics (e.g F. F. Chen's "Introduction to Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion"); that is not what I was looking for and that is not the emphasis of this text.
This covers the basic physics and explains the basic concepts behind several of the more popular fusion approaches. The reader should have college level physics and calculus to get the most out of this book. I found it useful but not comprehensive (you can only fit so much in under 300 pages). So if you want to know the fusion cross-section of, say, p + B reactions, you'll need to locate other information sources. But you will find reaction cross-section tabulations on d + t, d + d, etc. reactions as a function of energy.

If you're a controlled nuclear fusion buff like myself, this book does a decent job transitioning from history and introductory information to real plasma physics. Doesn't just cover tokamaks, stellarators, and inertial fusion but also discusses mirror, pinched, and muon catalyzed fusion (real cold fusion). Surprisingly in a few paragraphs it alludes to the Farnsworth fusor too. Great variety and solid intro for people getting serious...buy it.

This is a great Introductory fusion book for anyone that is just starting out in this field of plasma physics. It explains all of he fundimentals very well.

Interesting introductory text. A less qualitative (more in depth) approach on some chapters would have helped a lot.
