About this book

 This is the problems and solution manual for the graduate text with the same title and published as Lecture Notes in Physics Vol 877 which provides the necessary mathematical and physics background to understand the transport of gases, charged particle gases, energetic charged particles, turbulence, and radiation in an astrophysical and space physics context. The very detailed and self-contained problems and solutions will be an essential part of the training of any graduate student wishing to enter and pursuing research in this field. 

Reviews

“Undoubtedly provide a valuable theoretical resource for researchers in space physics and astrophysics, written by authors who are clearly deeply immersed in their subject material.” (S. W. H. Cowley, The Observatory, Vol. 136 (1254), October, 2016)
