This text is intended for final year undergraduate students and first year graduates, who want to find out what plasma physics is about. It will tell you how to apply the ideas and techniques of this branch of physics to many different situations.
by John Howard - Australian National University
This introduction covers basic plasma phenomena, kinetic theory, gaseous electronics, single particle motions, magnetized plasmas, magnetohydrodynamics, MHD plasma waves, waves in isotropic plasma, and waves in cold magnetized plasma.

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.
