Introduction to Plasma Physics by Richard Fitzpatrick is a complete set of lecture notes for a graduate level introductory plasma physics course. Topics covered include particle orbits, fluid theory, waves, MHD theory, and kinetic theory.
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.
