By Jeffrey P. Freidberg
Accomplished, self-contained, and obviously written, this successor to excellent Magnetohydrodynamics (1987) describes the macroscopic equilibrium and balance of hot temperature plasmas - the fundamental gas for the improvement of fusion energy. Now absolutely up to date, this ebook discusses the underlying actual assumptions for 3 uncomplicated MHD types: perfect, kinetic, and double-adiabatic MHD. integrated are designated analyses of MHD equilibrium and balance, with a selected specialize in 3 key configurations on the state-of-the-art of fusion examine: the tokamak, stellarator, and reversed box pinch. different new themes comprise continuum damping, MHD balance comparability theorems, neoclassical shipping in stellarators, and the way quasi-omnigeneity, quasi-symmetry, and quasi-isodynamic constraints impression the layout of optimized stellarators. together with complete derivations of virtually each vital outcome, in-depth actual factors all through, and a number of challenge units to aid grasp the cloth, this is often a superb source for graduate scholars and researchers in plasma and fusion physics.
