An essential reference for students and researchers in this field, this second volume presents a review of state-of-the-art theory and the application of magnetically confined plasma physics.
The book covers three major topics: the
Braginskii transport theory, the newly developed perpendicular
magnetofluid theory, and the fluid-kinetic hybrid theory. In greater
detail, the perpendicular magnetofluid theory is examined, along with the equilibrium
and stability analyses.
- Updated review of the theory and applications of magnetically confined plasma physics.
- Self-contained yet advanced book, essential for students and researchers.
