Magnetically Confined Fusion Plasma Physics, Volume 2

Multifluid theory
Linjin Zheng


An essential reference for students and researchers in this field, this second volume presents a review of state-of-the-art theory and the application of magnetically confined plasma physics. The book covers three major topics: the Braginskii transport theory, the newly developed perpendicular magnetofluid theory, and the fluid-kinetic hybrid theory. In greater detail, the perpendicular magnetofluid theory is examined, along with the equilibrium and stability analyses.

Key Features

  • Updated review of the theory and applications of magnetically confined plasma physics.
  • Self-contained yet advanced book, essential for students and researchers.
