Fusion: An Introduction to the Physics and Technology of Magnetic Confinement Fusion

Cover
John Wiley & Sons, 07.01.2010 - 262 Seiten
This second edition of a popular textbook is thoroughly revised with around 25% new and updated content.
It provides an introduction to both plasma physics and fusion technology at a level that can be understood by advanced undergraduates and graduate students in the physical sciences and related engineering disciplines.
As such, the contents cover various plasma confinement concepts, the support technologies needed to confine the plasma, and the designs of ITER as well as future fusion reactors.
With end of chapter problems for use in courses.
