Theory of fusion plasmas
This book contains the texts of the presentations made during the Joint Varenna-Lausanne International Workshop on "Theory of Fusion Plasmas", held in October 1988. The topics covered all physical aspects of magnetically confined hot plasmas (tokamaks, stellarators and alternative schemes), including: 1. Ideal and resistive MHD equilibrium and stability. Limits of operation 2. Relaxation and disruption phenomena 3. Microinstabilities 4. Fluid and microscopic turbulence 5. Theories of transport 6. RF heating and current drive 7. Plasma edge phenomena 8. Models and tools: numerical simulations and algorithms.
