9780486498652: Plasma Physics (Dover Books on Physics)

A historic snapshot of the field of plasma physics, this fifty-year-old volume offers an edited collection of papers by pioneering experts in the field. In addition to assisting students in their understanding of the foundations of classical plasma physics, it provides a source of historic context for modern physicists. Highly successful upon its initial publication, this book was the standard text on plasma physics throughout the 1960s and '70s.
Hailed by Science magazine as a "well executed venture," the three-part treatment ranges from basic plasma theory to magnetohydrodynamics and microwave plasma physics. Highlights include Klimontovich's article on quantum plasmas, Buneman's writings on how to distinguish between attenuating and amplifying waves, and Yoler's clear and cogent review of magnetohydrodynamics. Professional atomic and plasma physicists and all students of plasma physics will appreciate this historic resource.
