  • Provides many additions, updates and some corrections of chapter sections, figures, exercises and equations
  • Newly added chapter sections include topics such as plasma heating by reverse current, the moment equations, the powerful heat flux problem, the frozen field theorem, magnetic reconnection, stability of plasma-compressing waves, MHD oscillations in the solar corona and the Grad-Shafranov equation
  • Discusses updates on the evolutionarily of Trans-Alfvenic shock waves
This two-part book is devoted to classic fundamentals and current practices and perspectives of modern plasma astrophysics. This first part uniquely covers all the basic principles and practical tools required for understanding and work in plasma astrophysics. More than 25% of the text is updated from the first edition, including new figures, equations and entire sections on topics such as magnetic reconnection and the Grad-Shafranov equation.

The book is aimed at professional researchers in astrophysics, but it will also be useful to graduate students in space sciences, geophysics, applied physics and mathematics, especially those seeking a unified view of plasma physics and fluid mechanics.
