This volume discusses the aspects of the physics of fusion-relevant plasmas even the relevant aspects of basic plasma physics. It also includes experimental measurements illustrating a great deal of theoretical analysis. It is intended for graduate students in plasma physics, and is also suitable for fusion researchers.
