Newcomers to the field of inertial confinement fusion (ICF) often have difficulty establishing a clear picture of the overall field. The reason for this is because, while there are many books devoted to special topics within the field, there is none that provides an overview of the field as a whole. An Introduction to Inertial Confinement Fusion fills this gap with an overview of the processes involved in ICF presented at an accessible level. After a broad overview, the book follows the processes from the driver technology to burn physics in chronological order. As each topic appears, the author details the physical concepts and obstacles. The book concludes with a look to the future prospects of the field.

The original English-language edition of this work appeared in 1979. Since then researchers around the world have made slow but steady progress toward the realization of sustained, controlled nuclear fusion. This new edition has been updated to review the important contributions of the past decade. The final chapter, "Confinement of High-Temperature Plasmas, " has been rewritten entirely to include the recent results of confinement in several types of devices and advances the under standing of wave heating. Miyamoto's approach is unique in encompassing Western, Soviet, and Japanese research in the fusion field. The book's 16 chapters are grouped into four major subject areas. Chapters in the first part develop the fundamentals of plasma physics and present the conditions of nuclear fusion reactions; those in the next two parts provide a magnetohydrodynamic description of plasmas and explain wave phenomena and instabilities by means of a kinetic model. Concluding chapters take up the problems of heating, diagnostics, and confinement. Specific topics include the Lawson condition; Boltzmann and Vlasov equations; plasma equilibrium; magnetohydrodynamic instabilities; waves in cold and hot plasmas; microinstabilities; fast neutral beam injection and wave heating; and diagnostics using microwaves, lasers, and energy analyzers. Plasma confinement in tokamaks and stellarators, multipole fields, mirrors, and cusps, as well as inertial confinement, are reviewed. Kenro Miyamoto, is Professor of Physics at the University of Tokyo.

The energy that can, in principle, be obtained from the fusion of hydrogen (actually deuterium) in seawater would provide an energy many orders of magnitude greater than that in all fossil fuels combined. Unfortunately, harnessing fusion for commercial power production has proven elusive. One approach is based on trying to scale down thermonuclear explosions to a sufficiently small size that can be routinely used in a power plant. In such a process the inertia of the fuel itself provides the confinement necessary to maintain the thermonuclear reaction for long enough for more energy to be produced than was needed to start the reaction: hence the name Inertial-Confinement Fusion.

Nuclear Fusion describes the state and ultimate goals of nuclear fusion research. The book concentrates on the energy problem in the near future, the role of nuclear fusion reactions for a solution of the energy problem, the requirements for releasing fusion energy and the methods likely to lead to fusion reactions. The book is organised into four sections. In turn these cover the fundamentals of nuclear fusion, methods of magnetic confinement, methods of innertial confinement and the fusion reactor itself. The book has a strong theoretical content, covering those areas of plasma physics which are necessary for an understanding of the confinement problem. This book was first published in Japanese. This edition in English has been thoroughly revised by Keishiro Niu.
