Best books for learning Plasma Physics?

  • #1
Hi there,

So I have two questions really.

My first question is, I'm having a bit of trouble finding which books I should get to teach myself plasma physics. My school doesn't offer a course on the subject, sadly, so I asked my professors, who do nuclear research, and they didn't know which books to recommend either. Any recommendations?

My second question is what sort of courses can prep me to better understand Plasma Physics, I've taken several upper division courses, like graduate Electrodynamics, Applied Partial Differential Equations, Chaos Theory/Nonlinear Dynamics, and Quantum Theory. Is there any other courses that might help me along the way?

Thanks in advance.

Francis Chen "Intro to Plasma Physics".

This should have been posted in the Textbook forum.
