Physics of fully ionized gases by Lyman Spitzer( Book )

76 editions published between 1956 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic graduate-level volume was the first general but simple introduction to the fields of plasma and fusion research. Since its original publication in 1956, it has served as a valuable reference. Designed for those who have had a introductory course in theoretical physics but are otherwise unacquainted with the detailed kinetic theory of gases, it chiefly emphasizes macroscopic equations and their consequences. The contents are restrictred to topics offering a theorectical understanding of plasma and fusion research. Subjects include the motion of a particle, macroscopic behavior of a plasma, waves in a plasma, equilibria and their stability, and encounters between changed particles. A helpful appendix offers background on the Boltzmann equation. -- from back cover
