Serves as an advanced introduction and a reference for researchers in the field of stability and transport in tokamaks
Advances the understanding of fluid contra kinetic models, resilience and pinch effects, and transport barrier physics
Includes references and exercises for better understanding of this complex topic
Stability and Transport in Magnetic Confinement Systems provides an advanced introduction to the fields of stability and transport in tokamaks. It serves as a reference for researchers with its highly-detailed theoretical background, and contains new results in the areas of analytical nonlinear theory of transport using kinetic theory and fluid closure. The use of fluid descriptions for advanced stability and transport problems provide the reader with a better understanding of this topic.
In addition, the areas of nonlinear kinetic theory and fluid closure gives the researcher the basic knowledge of a highly relevant area to the present development of transport physics.
