The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) physics specifications provide the basis for the engineering design requirements. They are based on experimental results obtained on present day tokamaks, plasma theory and extrapolation to the ITER parameters. The present paper summarizes recent results obtained from the ITER physics research and development programme conducted by the four ITER Parties and presents projections for ITER plasma performance, operational scenarios and plasma control obtained by the ITER Joint Central Team and Home Teams.
