This book can be very useful as a graduate level plasma text, or a reference, or as something to put on your shelf to make you look like a "serious" plasma physicist. It covers drifts extremely well and I was reasonably pleased with the two fluid model. But in the end if you are trying to learn plasma physics this book really shines as a SUPPLEMENT and I imagine would be pretty frustrating as your only source to learn from. I bought this book and Chen's book for my graduate plasma 1 course. I never opened Chen, referenced Goldston often throughout the course (and as expected put a lot of focus on the class notes). But honestly, I think you probably already know if you need this book.
Good introductory book to understand the basics of plasma physics, plasma waves, and plasma instabilities such as Rayleigh-Taylor and drift waves.
A note to publishers: Clarity of printing not good in some pages
very good thank you~
A famous book in nuclear fusion and plasma physics.
The author is a great reseacher in Princeton.
I haven't read all of its contents.
This book explains plasma's natural behaivior in a logical manner.
I think this book is easy to understand for beginners too.
But the condition is 'acceptable' rather than 'good'.
Bad condition i had better used books but its information will be useful, its highlighted with pencil, it has a part of paper book like cracks. But the information its good.
I am a university student who major in physics. and this book was a text in plasma course. As plasma group of princeton univ. is strong, this book is strong enough to understand plasma. most favorite thing in this book is sufficient explanation about the physical and mathmatical explanation. and the not good thing is a little dirty mathmatical calculation. so if you want clear mathmatics, I think you had better look another book. Anyway if you read this from cover to cover, you can learn ABC of Plasma. isn't it wonderful?
