Nuclear fusion has the potential to become the most important energy source of the new century. But still many problems, as e.g. the confinement of the plasma, are not yet solved. Thus they are subject to intense research which drives a rapid evolvement of this field of nuclear physics, and generates the need for an up-to-date textbook for graduate students. This state-of-the-art textbook assembles the material for a modern course, and is aimed at graduate and advanced undergraduate students. It both introduces the fundamental principles and theories of fusion plasma physics, and presents the most recent topics from various sources in a systematic and concise way. Each chapter is rounded off with a set of exercises.

Professor Stacey received his PhD in Nuclear Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1966. He then worked in naval reactor design at Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory and led the fast reactor theory and computations and the fusion research programs at Argonne National Laboratory. In 1977, he became Callaway Professor of Nuclear Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he has been teaching and performing research in reactor physics and plasma physics. He is the author of six books and about 250 research papers. He led the international INTOR Workshop which defined the design features and R&D needs for the first fusion experimental reactor, for which he received the US Dept. of Energy Distinguished Associate Award. Professor Stacey is a Fellow of the American Nuclear Society and of the American Physical Society and is the recipient of, among other awards, the Seaborg Award for Nuclear Research and the Wigner Reactor Physics Award from the American Nuclear Society.
Nuclear fusion, mankind’s ultimate energy source, may become the most important energy source of the new century. But still many important phenomena, e.g. the transport mechanisms that determine the confinement of the plasma, are not yet fully understood. Thus, they are the subject of intense research, which drives a rapid environment of this field of plasma physics and generates the need for an up-to-date textbook for students and reference for researchers in the field. This state-of-the-art textbook assembles material from various sources in a systematic and concise way for a modern course on the physics of magnetically confined plasmas aimed at graduate and advanced undergraduate students. It both presents the fundamental theories and methodologies of fusion plasma physics and introduces the topics of current research. Each chapter is rounded off with a set of exercises.
