This second edition of Basic Data of Plasma Physics is, in essence, a new book, for several reasons. First, so voluminous have been the research results in this area since the first edition of that the basic data themselves are greatly changed and enlarged. This reference work is a compilation of some of the most important plasma physics measurements published during the late s and the early s. It offers a wealth of useful information on elastic-collision and charge- transfer cross sections, mobility and diffusion, electron attachment and detachment, and : AIP-Press. It offers a wealth of useful information on elastic-collision and charge-transfer cross sections, mobility and diffusion, electron attachment and detachment, and recombination. Numerous fundamental principles make this a much-consulted handbook on the physical phenomena, measurements, and .

Ever since, plasma scientists have had to explain to friends and acquaintances that they were not studying blood! Brief history of plasma physics. In the s and s a few isolated researchers, each motivated by a specific practical problem, began the study of what is now called plasma physics.

intended to provide the basic plasma physics necessary to understand the operation of ion and Hall thrusters. The units used throughout the book are based on the International System (SI). However, by convention we will occasionally revert to other metric units (such as A/cm2, mg/s, etc.) commonly used in the literature describing these devices. The primary objective of this book is to present and develop the fundamentals and principal applications of plasma physics, with an emphasis on what is usually called high-temperature plasma physics where the plasma is nearly fully ionized with nearly negligible effects of neutral particles on the plasma . Space Plasma Physics Thomas Wiegelmann, 1. Basic Plasma Physics concepts 2. Overview about solar system plasmas 3. Single particle motion, Test particle model 4. Statistic description of plasma, BBGKY- Hierarchy and kinetic equations 5. Fluid models, Magneto-Hydro-Dynamics 6. Magneto-Hydro-Statics 7. Stationary MHD and Sequences of Equilibria. Most of the chapters are devoted to the theory of small amplitude perturbations which is the most well developed aspect of the subject. The remaining ones are concerned with weak nonlinear waves, and collapse and self-focusing of Langmuir waves, two topics of widespread interest and application. Finally an important chapter on particle simulation has been included, as that numerical technique.
