The primary objectives of this book are, firstly, to present the essential theoretical background needed to understand recent fusion research and, secondly, to describe the current status of fusion research for graduate students and senior undergraduates. It will also serve as a useful reference for scientists and engineers working in the related fields. In Part I, Plasma Physics, the author explains the basics of magneto-hydrodynamics and kinetic theory in a simple and compact way and, at the same time, covers important new topics for fusion studies such as the ballooning representation, instabilities driven by energetic particles, and various plasma models for computer simulations. Part II, Controlled Nuclear Fusion, attempts to review the 'big picture' in fusion research. Mathematical derivations are comprehensively explained to better enable readers to later concentrate on the physics. All important phenomena and technologies are addressed, with a particular emphasis on the topics of most concern in current research.

From the reviews:
“Plasma Physics and Controlled Nuclear Fusion presents theoretical background in plasma physics needed to understand the fundamentals of nuclear fusion. ... The book is based on lectures given by the author at the graduate level. ... The book provides a thorough overview of the physics of fusion plasmas. ... The book can definitely serve as a reference for scientists and engineers already working in nuclear fusion, who will find the book clear and easy to follow.” (Eugenio Schuster, IEEE Control Systems Magazine, Vol. 27, April, 2007)
