BeschreibungPlasma Physics: Confinement, Transport and Collective Effects provides an overview of modern plasma research with special focus on confinement and related issues. Beginning with a broad introduction, the book leads graduate students and researchers - also those from related fields - to an understanding of the state-of-the-art in modern plasma physics. Furthermore, it presents a methodological cross section ranging from plasma applications and plasma diagnostics to numerical simulations, the latter providing an increasingly important link between theory and experiment. Effective references guide the reader from introductory texts through to contemporary research. Some related exercises in computational plasma physics are supplied on a special web site

PressestimmenFrom the reviews of the first edition:
"This book is a compilation of review articles written by different authors, experts in modern fields of plasma physics, and it can serve as an excellent reference book for both the professional plasma physicists and graduate students. Each chapter of the book covers a specific subject giving the necessary introductory definitions and explanations as well as the current state of the art. ... The text of the book is divided into 18 chapters, each of them followed by an extensive list of references ... ." (Vladimir Cadez, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1083, 2006)
