With the investment of the international community in major new projects such as ITER, the area of fusion and plasma physics is at a rapidly changing state in its development. The interest in nuclear fusion is rising, and comprehensive references in nuclear fusion and plasma physics are critically needed. It is vitally important to update the content of books such as this in a timely fashion to present the current state of the art.This book is a very comprehensive introduction to fusion plasma physics. It spans the subject from the classical textbook knowledge to more recent developments. The new edition keeps the original book up to date by adding information on alternate concepts. It introduces basic theory of plasmas and relates it to contemporary applications to controlled nuclear fusion. It is a unique contribution to the genre, in that it discusses the practical achievement of controlled fusion.The changes to this edition are additions to the existing chapters which reflect the most recent advances in research, ranging from plasma instabilities to edge phenomena, an area in fusion science that is growing rapidly, and power extraction. It does also include descriptions of recent alternative confinement devices such as stellarators and reversed field pinches, and new work on the use of fusion–fission hybrids for closing the nuclear fuel cycle.The book is suitable for graduate students doing research, or students in a post–graduate course. Experienced researchers may wish to consult this book to obtain an introduction to aspects of plasma physics and controlled fusion outside their speciality.The author has been an active researcher and teacher in plasma physics for more than 35 years. Professor Weston M. Stacey served several boards and institutions, and authored six books as well as a host of papers. Among other prices, he received the Wigner Reactor Physics Award.
