By Jeffrey P. Freidberg

entire, self-contained, and obviously written, this successor to perfect Magnetohydrodynamics (1987) describes the macroscopic equilibrium and balance of hot temperature plasmas - the elemental gas for the improvement of fusion strength. Now totally up-to-date, this ebook discusses the underlying actual assumptions for 3 easy MHD types: perfect, kinetic, and double-adiabatic MHD. incorporated are specific analyses of MHD equilibrium and balance, with a specific specialise in 3 key configurations on the state of the art of fusion study: the tokamak, stellarator, and reversed box pinch. different new themes comprise continuum damping, MHD balance comparability theorems, neoclassical delivery 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 very important consequence, in-depth actual reasons all through, and loads of challenge units to assist grasp the cloth, this is often an outstanding source for graduate scholars and researchers in plasma and fusion physics.
