UV and X-Ray Spectroscopy of Laboratory and Astrophysical Plasmas

Lowest new price: $74.55
Lowest used price: $18.88
List price: $190.00
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

UV and X-ray spectroscopy of astrophysical and laboratory plasmas draws interest from many disciplines. Contributions from international specialists are collected together in this book from a timely recent conference. In astrophysics, the Hubble Space Telescope, Astro 1 and ROSAT observatories are now providing UV and X-ray spectra and images of cosmic sources in unprecedented detail, while the Yohkoh mission recently collected superb data on the solar corona. In the laboratory, the development of ion-trap facilities and novel laser experiments are providing vital new data on high temperature plasmas. Recent innovations in the technology of spectroscopic instrumentation are discussed. These papers constitute an excellent up-to-date review of developments in short-wave length spectroscopy and offer a solid introduction to its theoretical and experimental foundations.

Plasma Dynamics (Oxford Science Publications)

Plasma Dynamics (Oxford Science Publications) Lowest new price: $66.40
Lowest used price: $66.39
List price: $80.00
Author: R. O. Dendy
Brand: Brand: Oxford University Press

This text examines the distinctive physics of plasmas--the form in which most visible matter in the universe is found. The book provides an introduction to plasma particle dynamics, plasma waves, magnetohydrodynamics, plasma kinetic theory, two-fluid theory, and non-linear plasma physics. Rather than emphasizing mathematical considerations, this concise volume concentrates on underlying physical principles. The most advanced background knowledge required consists of Maxwell's equations, and these are reviewed in the introduction. The text will be useful to undergraduates in physics as well as graduates studying astrophysics, nuclear physics, and plasma physics.

Kinetics of Nonequilibrium Low-Temperature Plasmas

Kinetics of Nonequilibrium Low-Temperature Plasmas Lowest new price: $76.47
Lowest used price: $84.50
List price: $99.00
Author: L.M. Biberman

The first research on plasma was done in connection with the study of electrical discharges in gases. The focus of attention for physicists was the partially ionized plasma, the kinetics of which is governed by various collisional and radiative processes. The choice of this area of research was motivated largely by the practical problems of that time the creation of gas-discharge light sources, rectifiers, and inverters. Since the early 1950s interest in plasma physics has risen sharply, particularly in the study of the completely ionized plasma with its various collective phenomena, insta­ bilities, and the interesting and sometimes unexpected effects attending the propagation of electromagnetic waves in such a plasma and the action on it of external electric and magnetic fields. Interest in hot plasmas has been stimulated not only by the diverse and novel physical phenomena, but also by the problems arising in connection with controlled nuclear fusion. The advent, in the early 1960s, of new technical fields such as gas-discharge lasers, magnetohydrodynamic generators, thermoemission converters, plasma chemistry, plasma propul­ sion devices, various methods in plasma technology, etc. , has led to increased interest in weakly ionized low-tempera­ ture plasmas. This is particularly true of nonequilibrium plasmas, which are characterized by an extraordinary diver­ sity of states and properties.

Instabilities in Space and Laboratory Plasmas

Instabilities in Space and Laboratory Plasmas Lowest new price: $49.06
Lowest used price: $41.08
List price: $57.00
Author: D. B. Melrose
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

This introductory account of instabilities in plasmas concentrates on laboratory plasmas, such as those encountered in fusion research, and the space plasmas studied in physics of the magnetosphere and solar atmosphere. This account bridges the gap between a graduate textbook on plasma physics, and specialized similarities between astrophysical and laboratory plasmas that are traditionally regarded as quite separate. The author, an expert in plasma astrophysics who has written a two-volume book on the subject, treats the material naturally, lending a broader perspective to the subject. This is an instructional text for graduate students and professionals in magnetospheric and mathematical physics, radiophysics, solar and theoretical astrophysics and radio astronomy.

Physics of Continuous Matter: Exotic and Everyday Phenomena in the Macroscopic World

Physics of Continuous Matter: Exotic and Everyday Phenomena in the Macroscopic World Lowest new price: $93.48
Lowest used price: $32.05
List price: $65.95
Author: B. Lautrup
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

Offering a modern approach to this most classical of subjects, Physics of Continuous Matter is first and foremost an introduction to the basic concepts and phenomenology of continuous systems, and the derivations of the equations of continuum mechanics from Newtonian mechanics. Although many examples, particularly in the earlier chapters, are taken from geophysics and astrophysics, the author places the emphasis frimly on generic methods and applications. Each chapter begins with a ‘soft’ introduction, placing the discussion within an everyday context, and the level of difficulty then rises steadily, a pattern which is reflected throughout the text as a whole. The necessary mathematical tools are developed in parallel with the physics on a ‘need-to-know’ basis, an approach that avoids lengthy mathematical preliminaries.

Anomalous Transport: Foundations and Applications

Anomalous Transport: Foundations and Applications Lowest new price: $164.06
Lowest used price: $134.00
List price: $234.00
Brand: Brand: Wiley-VCH

This multi-author reference work provides a unique introduction to the currently emerging, highly interdisciplinary field of those transport processes that cannot be described by using standard methods of statistical mechanics. It comprehensively summarizes topics ranging from mathematical foundations of anomalous dynamics to the most recent experiments in this field. In so doing, this monograph extracts and emphasizes common principles and methods from many different disciplines while providing up-to-date coverage of this new field of research, considering such diverse applications as plasma physics, glassy material, cell science, and socio-economic aspects.
The book will be of interest to both theorists and experimentalists in nonlinear dynamics, statistical physics and stochastic processes. It also forms an ideal starting point for graduate students moving into this area. 18 chapters written by internationally recognized experts in this field provide in-depth introductions to fundamental aspects of anomalous transport.

Magnetohydrodynamic Turbulence

Magnetohydrodynamic Turbulence Lowest new price: $101.74

List price: $144.00
Author: Dieter Biskamp
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

After a brief outline of magnetohydrodynamic theory, this introductory book discusses the macroscopic aspects of MHD turbulence, and covers the small-scale scaling properties. Applications are provided for astrophysical and laboratory systems. Magnetic turbulence is the natural state of most astrophysical systems, such as stellar convection zones, stellar winds or accretion discs. It is also found in laboratory devices, most notably in the reversed field pinch.
