The text is relevant to diverse plasma applications, such as controlled fusion, astrophysical plasmas, solar physics, magnetospheric plasmas, and plasma thrusters. After developing the basic plasma equations from first principles, the book explores single particle motion with particular attention to adiabatic invariance. The author then examines types of plasma waves and the issue of Landau damping. Magnetohydrodynamic equilibrium and stability are tackled with emphasis on the topological concepts of magnetic helicity and self-organization.
