  • 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$ 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Applications of Laser-Plasma Interactionsby Shalom Eliezer; 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...

  • Cathodic Arcsby Andre Anders

    Springer 2009; US$ 219.00

    Emphasizes the fractal character of cathode spots, and describes strongly fluctuating plasma properties such as the presence of multiply charged ions that move with supersonic velocity. This book also deals with issues, such as arc source construction, and macroparticle removal. It is intended for scientists, practitioners, and students alike. more...

  • Electron Cyclotron Emission and Electron Cyclotron Resonance Heating (EC-15)by John Lohr

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 332.00

    These proceedings present the latest results in electron cyclotron emission, heating and current drive, with an emphasis on the physics and technology of Electron Cyclotron Emission, Electron Cyclotron Heating and Electron Cyclotron Current Drive applied to magnetic fusion research. The field is a key element in the development of fusion power and... more...

  • Physics of Ionized Gasesby Boris M. Smirnov; Howard Reiss

    Wiley 2008; US$ 210.00

    A comprehensive textbook and reference for the study of the physics of ionized gases The intent of this book is to provide deep physical insight into the behavior of gases containing atoms and molecules from which one or more electrons have been ionized. The study of these so-called plasmas begins with an overview of plasmas as they are found in nature... more...
