Advanced Magnetohydrodynamics by J. P. Goedbloed,Rony Keppens,Stefaan Poedts

By J. P. Goedbloed,Rony Keppens,Stefaan Poedts

Following on from the significant other quantity rules of Magnetohydrodynamics, this textbook analyzes the purposes of plasma physics to thermonuclear fusion and plasma astrophysics from the only standpoint of MHD. This procedure seems to be ever extra strong while utilized to streaming plasmas (the overwhelming majority of noticeable topic within the Universe), toroidal plasmas (the such a lot promising method of fusion energy), and nonlinear dynamics (where all of it comes including glossy computational concepts and severe transonic and relativistic plasma flows). The textbook interweaves conception and particular calculations of waves and instabilities of streaming plasmas in complicated magnetic geometries. it really is splendid to complicated undergraduate and graduate classes in plasma physics and astrophysics.
