Abstract

The apparatus for bringing about controlled fusion must bring an inflammable gas (a mixture of diplogen and tritium) to a temperature of a hundred million degrees, and confine it for a sufficient time so that the collisions with exothermic nuclear reactions, gives off a high degree of energy, greater than the energy needed to heat the gas. "Tokamaks" are the controlled fusion machines which currently come closest to these objectives and for this reason the study of confinement in these devices is subjected to close examination.
