This volume is mainly concerned with a systematic development of the theory of plasmas, the authority being firmly rooted in the pioneering work of Landau. Corresponding results are also given for partially ionized plasmas, relativistic plasmas, degenerate or non-ideal plasmas and solid state plasmas.
For final year undergraduates, postgraduates, research workers in theoretical physics and physics.
Kinetic theory of gases; Collisionless plasmas; Plasmas in magnetic fields; Instability theory; Insulators; Quantum liquids; Metals; Superconductors; Index.
