This invaluable book is designed to provide a basic introduction to plasma equilibrium, particle orbits, transport, and those ideal and resistive magnetohydrodynamic instabilities which dominate the behavior of toroidal magnetically confined plasmas, and to develop the mathematical methods necessary for their theoretical analysis. The book deals primarily with the consequences of ideal and resistive magnetohydrodynamics, these theories being responsible for most of what is well understood regarding the physics of fusion oriented discharges.


Toroidal configuration; equilibrium; guiding centre motion; linear ideal modes; linear resistive modes; nonlinear behaviour; mode-particle interaction; transport; phase integral methods.
