Computational Plasma Physics: With Applications To Fusion And Astrophysics (Anglais) Broché – 13 février 2004
Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
The physics of plasmas is an extremely rich and complex subject as the variety of topics addressed in this book demonstrates. This richness and complexity demands new and powerful techniques for investigating plasma physics. An outgrowth from his graduate course teaching, now with corrections, Tajima's text provides not only a lucid introduction to computational plasma physics, but also offers the reader many examples of the way numerical modeling, properly handled, can provide valuable physical understanding of the nonlinear aspects so often encountered in both laboratory and astrophysical plasmas. Included here are computational methods for modern nonlinear physics as applied to hydrodynamic turbulence, solitons, fast reconnection of magnetic fields, anomalous transports, dynamics of the sun, and more. The text contains examples of problems now solved using computational techniques including those concerning finite-size particles, spectral techniques, implicit differencing, gyrokinetic approaches, and particle simulation.

They call this a computational book?????

Collection of theoretical background for computational methods. Poor description of the methods themselves. This book is difficult to read. You better be a top notch expert in plasma physics to get anything out of this one. I was able to learn a few bits here and there, save your money and buy something else.

Holds up after twenty years

This isn't a new edition of Tajima's original compendium but the physics and algorithms described are still in widespread use and it never assumes that you're using particular software or a programming language. This book is for graduate scientists and engineers who shouldn't find it difficult to translate the algorithms into pseudo-code that they can create a simulation or make calculations from. There's an awful lot of theoretical work developed here from neural networks to accelerator design and I found at least three of the chapters useful for the plasma physics project that I was working on. Still, after twenty years an update of this book would be worthwhile given the author's fascination with the invention of the "mouse".
