  • Interest in the book because of the limited number of other books on similar topics
  • Concise size (100 pages) and timely contents making the book attractive and complementary to more extended, but less updated work
  • Accessibility to students, newcomers and non-specialists, by adopting a problem-oriented approach which simplifies the mathematical description but keeps self-consistency
  • Suitability of the book as the main textbook of an introductory lecture course on laser-plasma interactions, or as an additional textbook for a more general course on plasma physics
The continuous trend towards higher and higher laser intensities has opened the way to new physical regimes and advanced applications of laser-plasma interactions, thus stimulating novel connections with ultrafast optics, astrophysics, particle physics, and biomedical applications. This book is primarily oriented towards students and young researchers who need to acquire rapidly a basic knowledge of this active and rapidly changing research field. To this aim, the presentation is focused on a selection of basic models and inspiring examples, and includes topics which emerged recently such as ion acceleration, "relativistic engineering" and radiation friction. The contents are presented in a self-contained way assuming only a basic knowledge of classical electrodynamics, mechanics and relativistic dynamics at the undergraduate (Bachelor) level, without requiring any previous knowledge of plasma physics. Hence, the book may serve in several ways: as a compact textbook for lecture courses, as a short and accessible introduction for the newcomer, as a quick reference for the experienced researcher, and also as an introduction to some nonlinear mathematical methods through examples of their application to laser-plasma modeling.
