Ideal MHD. Jeffrey P. Comprehensive, self-contained, and clearly written, this successor to Ideal Magnetohydrodynamics describes the macroscopic equilibrium and stability of high temperature plasmas - the basic fuel for the development of fusion power. Now fully updated, this book discusses the underlying physical assumptions for three basic MHD models: ideal, kinetic, and double-adiabatic MHD.
Included are detailed analyses of MHD equilibrium and stability, with a particular focus on three key configurations at the cutting-edge of fusion research: the tokamak, stellarator, and reversed field pinch.
Other new topics include continuum damping, MHD stability comparison theorems, neoclassical transport in stellarators, and how quasi-omnigeneity, quasi-symmetry, and quasi-isodynamic constraints impact the design of optimized stellarators. Including full derivations of almost every important result, in-depth physical explanations throughout, and a large number of problem sets to help master the material, this is an exceptional resource for graduate students and researchers in plasma and fusion physics.
General properties of ideal MHD. MHD stability general considerations. MHD stability comparison theorems. Appendix A Heuristic derivation of the kinetic equation. Appendix B The Braginskii transport coefficients. The curvature vector. Alternate MHD models. The ideal MHD model.
