  • Charged Particle Trapsby F. G. Major; Viorica N. Gheorghe; GŁnther Werth

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 269.00

    Over the last quarter of this century, revolutionary advances have been made both in kind and in precision in the application of particle traps to the study of thephysics of charged particles, leading to intensi?ed interest in, and wide proliferation of, this topic. This book is intended as a timely addition to the literature, providing a systematic... more...

  • Thermal Plasma Torchesby M.F. Zhukov; I.M. Zasypkin

    Cambridge International Science Publishing 2007; US$ 200.00

    The results of experimental research of plasma torches are described. A simple classification of linear plasma torches is proposed. Engineering methods of processing experimental data are outlined together with the electrical and thermal characteristics of plasma torches of different design in criterial form. Special attention is paid to the problems... more...

  • Plasma Physics and Controlled Nuclear Fusionby Kenro Miyamoto

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 269.00

    The primary objectives of this book are, firstly, to present the essential theoretical background needed to understand recent fusion research and, secondly, to describe the current status of fusion research for graduate students and senior undergraduates. It will also serve as a useful reference for scientists and engineers working in the related fields.... more...

  • Elementary Physics of Complex Plasmasby V.N. Tsytovich; G.E. Morfill; H. Thomas

    Springer 2006; US$ 129.00

    Complex plasmas are dusty plasmas in which the density and electric charges of the dust grains are sufficiently high to induce long-range grain-grain interactions. This book addresses students as well as specialist and nonspecialist researchers with a background in either plasma physics, space sciences or the physics of complex systems. more...

  • Hydromagnetic Waves in the Magnetosphere and the Ionosphereby Leonid S. Alperovich; Evgeny N. Fedorov

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 269.00

    Here is a fascinating text that integrates topics pertaining to all scales of the MHD-waves, emphasizing the linkages between the ULF-waves below the ionosphere on the ground and magnetospheric MHD-waves. It will be most helpful to graduate and post-graduate students, familiar with advanced calculus, who study the science of MHD-waves in the magnetosphere... more...

  • Plasma Polarization Spectroscopyby Takashi Fujimoto; Atsushi Iwamae

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 259.00

    Plasma Polarization Spectroscopy (PPS) is now becoming a standard diagnostic technique for working with laboratory plasmas. This new area needs a comprehensive framework, both experimental and theoretical. This book reviews the historical development of PPS, develops a general theoretical formulation to deal with this phenomenon, along with an overview... more...

  • Quantum Plasmadynamicsby Donald Melrose

    Springer 2007; US$ 89.95

    The field of quantum plasmas has a long and diverse tradition and is becoming of increasing current interest, motivated by applications to micro-electronics and to focused high-power lasers. In this book, plasma kinetic theory is developed a covariant (4-tensor) notation, which facilitates generalizations to include all relativistic and electromagnetic... more...

  • Energyby Andrew Dean Foland

    Infobase Publishing 2007; US$ 30.00

    Energy is the central concept of physics. Unable to be created or destroyed but transformable from one form to another, energy ultimately determines what is and isn't possible in our universe. This book gives readers an appreciation for the limits of energy and the quantities of energy in the world around them. This fascinating book explores the... more...

  • Magneto-Fluid Dynamicsby Paul Lorrain; Francois Lorrain; Stephane Houle

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 209.00

    This book provides an understanding of the physics at work in sunspots and solar coronal loops, and offers a new approach to Magneto-Fluid-Dynamics (or Magneto-Hydro-Dynamics).The book stresses the use of electric currents in Magneto-Fluid-Dynamics. As a rule, authors discuss magnetic field lines without referring to the required electric currents.... more...

  • Molecular Processes in Plasmasby Yukikazu Itikawa

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 209.00

    A variety of plasmas include molecules rather than only ions or atoms. Examples are ionospheres of the Earth and other planets, stellar atmospheres, gaseous discharges for use in various devices and processes, and fusion plasmas in the edge region. This book describes the role of molecules in those plasmas by showing elementary collision processes... more...
