[Solutions] Introduction to Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion Plasma Physics
Previous issue Next issue. View all abstracts. We present full set of coupled equations describing the weakly relativistic dynamics of a laser in a plasma with transverse inhomogeneity. We apply variational principle approach to obtain these coupled equations governing laser spot-size, transverse wavenumber, curvature, transverse centroid, etc. We observe that such plasma inhomogeneity can lead to stronger self-focusing.

A quantum kinetic equation containing exchange-correlation described by an effective potential is derived, in a non-relativistic electrostatic quantum plasma. The velocity moments of the kinetic equation produce quantum fluid equations modified by the exchange-correlation potential. Closure of the hydrodynamic equations is achieved by expressing the pressure dyad in terms of the number density, using a quantum corrected local velocity displaced Wigner function equilibrium. The propagation of ion-acoustic waves in a quantum electron-ion plasma is analyzed, in the case of a completely degenerate electron gas. The fluid and kinetic approaches are compared and shown to agree in the long wavelength limit.
The third edition of this classic text presents a complete introduction to plasma physics and controlled fusion, written by one of the pioneering scientists in this expanding field. It offers both a simple and intuitive discussion of the basic concepts of the subject matter and an insight into the challenging problems of current research. This outstanding text offers students a painless introduction to this important field; for teachers, a large collection of problems; and for researchers, a concise review of the fundamentals as well as original treatments of a number of topics never before explained so clearly. In a wholly lucid manner the second edition covered charged-particle motions, plasmas as fluids, kinetic theory, and nonlinear effects. For the third edition, two new chapters have been added to incorporate discussion of more recent advances in the field. The new chapter 9 on Special Plasmas covers non-neutral plasmas, pure electron plasmas, solid and ultra-cold plasmas, pair-ion plasmas, dusty plasmas, helicon plasmas, atmospheric-pressure plasmas, sheath-bounded plasmas, reconnection and turbulence. Following this, chapter 10 describes Plasma Applications such as magnetic fusion pinches, mirrors, FRCs, stellarators, tokamaks, spheromaks , plasma accelerators and FELs, ine.
