Foundations of plasma physics for physicists and mathematicians /

"Plasma physics has a short but complex history. Over the past 100 years the subject has embraced a wide range of separate disciplines. The possibility of controlled fusion power generation and its application to magnetospheric physics and astrophysics has made it an essential element of almost...
