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

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

Following on from the better half quantity ideas 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 whilst utilized to streaming plasmas (the overwhelming majority of obvious topic within the Universe), toroidal plasmas (the so much promising method of fusion energy), and nonlinear dynamics (where all of it comes including smooth computational innovations and severe transonic and relativistic plasma flows). The textbook interweaves thought and particular calculations of waves and instabilities of streaming plasmas in advanced magnetic geometries. it really is splendid to complex undergraduate and graduate classes in plasma physics and astrophysics.
