Editorial Reviews


'...a substantial enlargement over the original 1985 edition, which has enjoyed wide popularity amongst fusion researchers. ...The material is presented in the half intuitive, half mathematical language of an experienced and knowledgeable professional. ...all groups would find this to be a most valuable new edition to the fusion literature.' D.E. Baldwin, Nuclear Fusion , Vol. 37, No. 6, 1997

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book serves as an encyclopedia of the 60+ years of knowledge that come before us in this field. Usually Wesson just gives an overview of various topics and refers you to a long list of references for more information. The information is typically practical, apparently designed for an experimentalist in mind but it does delve into theory as necessary. It also talks about some past/and current big machines and their research objective. ( I am really glad that I finally bought this book (though I wish I had waited a few more months for the 4th editions) but it is very helpful to have my own copy. This book is one of the ones that you read for one thing and then you get drawn into learning and a few sections or chapters later you have learned quite a lot. First book I would recommend buying as a fusion experimentalist grad student or scientist.
