Book description

The book contains an expanded presentation of the course "Fundamentals of Plasma Physics". Special attention is given to the motion of particles in an electromagnetic field and the plasma kinetics, including the theory of Coulomb collisions, braking and recombination radiation, as well as a number of other elementary processes. A reader would find a detailed description of the theory of one-fluid and two-fluid magneto hydrodynamics. The book is intended for students who are familiar with the course of electrodynamics and molecular physics as well as the basics of quantum mechanics and statistical physics. The tutorial contains about 200 problems with detailed solutions.

The book is intended for students, graduate students, university professors, practitioners, and researchers specializing in physics and technology of plasma.
