ASDEX contributions to a conference on controlled fusion and plasma physics in 1979 are contained within this publication. The first invited paper gives an overview of the different confinement regimes observed on ASDEX. Changes during the transition phases are compared with qualitative tendencies suggested by theoretical models. Transitions between purely ohmic heating and additional heating in the L-regime, between the L- and H-regime, and between discharges with flat and peaked electron density profiles, are discussed. The second invited paper is a survey of edge modelling and its application to running experiments with an emphasis on poloidal divertors. The subjects of other papers include bulk plasma profiles, particle transport, impurity studies, auxiliary heating and momentum confinement, impurity production and concentration, and pellet ablation.
