Course Information

Prerequisite: A.P. E6101x. Linear waves in magnetized and homogeneous plasmas. Fluid theory of equilbrium and stability for toroidal plasmas, including ballooning and tearing instabilities. Drift instabilities and kinetic theory of transport. Professor Boozer: "This course is for graduate students who plan to do research in plasma physics or a related area. The major topics are: geometric optics and linear plasma waves; force equilibrium between plasmas and magnetic fields; the stability of equilibria; the microscopic, or kinetic, theory of plasmas; Landau damping and microstability; and Coulomb collisions and transport. The grade is based on one test and the final exam."
