Line-shape analysis is one of the most important tools for diagnostics of both laboratory and space plasmas. Its implementation requires accurate calculations, which imply the use of analytic methods and computer codes of varying complexity.
by Michael Gedalin - Ben-Gurion University
Contents: Basic definitions and parameters; Plasma description; MHD equilibria and waves; MHD discontinuities; Waves in dispersive media; Waves in two-fluid hydrodynamics; Kinetic theory; Micro-instabilities; Nonlinear phenomena; Plasma parameters.

The course is intended only as a first plasma physics course, but includes the critical concepts needed for a foundation for further study. A solid undergraduate background in classical physics and electromagnetic theory are prerequisites.
