Overview

The tokamak is the predominant device used to try to wring useful power from thermonuclear fusion. Wesson and a number of collaborating colleagues provide specialists already working in tokamak research with information about other areas of the subject, and those outside the field with an introduction to the principal concepts, methods, and problems involved. He includes equations, formulas, and data that research workers often need. Among the topics are fusion, equilibrium, confinement, instabilities, diagnostics, plasma-surface interactions, and large tokamakis. He has updated the 1987 and 1997 editions to reflect developments in the science and technology. Distributed by Oxford University Press. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
