**Introduction to Plasma Physics**

by I. H. Hutchinson

**Publisher**: MIT 2001**Number of pages**: 285

**Description**:

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, electromagnetic theory including Maxwell's equations, and mathematical familiarity with partial differential equations and complex analysis are prerequisites.
