Spectral Line Shapes in Plasmas
by Evgeny Stambulchik (ed.)
Publisher: MDPI AG 2015
Number of pages: 229
Line-shape analysis is one of the most important tools for diagnostics of both laboratory and space plasmas. Its reliable implementation requires sufficiently accurate calculations, which imply the use of analytic methods and computer codes of varying complexity, and, necessarily, varying limits of applicability and accuracy.

These notes lay the foundations for the interpretation of magnetic fields and fluxes in terms of equilibrium plasma parameters. 'Magnetic diagnostics' means those diagnostics which are used to measure magnetic fields and fluxes using induction coils.
