Synopsis: This volume describes the two main applications of plasma physics--laboratory research on thermo-nuclear fusion energy and plasma astrophysics of the solar system and stars and accretion disks--from the single viewpoint of magnetohydrodynamics (Mhd). This approach provides effective methods and insights for the interpretation of plasma phenomena on virtually all scales, ranging from the laboratory to the universe. The text will be of value to senior-level undergraduates and graduate students in physics, astrophysics and magnetohydrodynamics.

Review: "This volume is a superb and comprehensive...book discussing methods and insights about plasmas at all scales, from lab to cosmos. This promises to be a classic MHD text..." T. Eastman, formerly, University of Maryland, CHOICE

"An outstanding contribution to the subject of MHD theory and its applications." Journal of Fluid Mechanics

"Principles of MHD illustrates key concepts in plasma physics with applications from both the laboratory and astrophysics, wherever possible. These complement each other, and are structured coherently. The text strikes a nice balance between rigorous development of important mathematical methods, clear explanation of technical concepts, and connections to familiar examples." - American Journal of Physics, Daniel V. Schroeder, Weber State University
