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

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

    This book provides an introduction and guide to modern advances in charged particle (and antiparticle) confinement by electromagnetic fields. Confinement in different trap geometries, the influence of trap imperfections, classical and quantum mechanical description of the trapped particle motion, different methods of ion cooling to low temperatures,... 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...

  • 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...

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

    Springer 2007; US$ 269.00

    The book deals with Ultra-Low-Frequency (ULF)-electromagnetic waves observed on the Earth and in Space. These are so-called geomagnetic variations or pulsations. Alfv??n's discovery related to the influence of the strong magnetic field on the conducting fluids (magnetohydrodynamics) led to development of the concept that the ULF-waves are magnetospheric... more...

  • Plasma Polarization Spectroscopyby Takashi Fujimoto; Atsushi Iwamae

    Springer 2007; US$ 239.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • Reviews of Plasma Physicsby Vitaly D. Shafranov

    Springer 2008; US$ 209.00

    "Reviews of Plasma Physics Volume 24," edited by V.D. Shafranov, presents two reviews from the cutting-edge of Russian plasma physics research. The first review by V.A. Rozhansky devoted to the mechanisms of transverse conductivity and generation of self-consistent electric fields in strongly ionized magnetized plasma. The second review by... more...

  • Molecular Processes in Plasmasby Y. Itikawa

    Springer 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...

  • Magneto-Fluid Dynamicsby Paul Lorrain; François Lorrain; Stéphane Houle

    Springer 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...

  • Applications of Laser-Plasma Interactionsby Kunioki Mima

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 159.95

    Recent advances in the development of lasers with more energy, power, and brightness have opened up new possibilities for exciting applications. Applications of Laser?Plasma Interactions reviews the current status of high power laser applications. The book first explores the science and technology behind the ignition and burn of imploded fusion... more...
