Magnetic confinement and MHD of fusion plasmas



Fusion can never work….unless you manage to confine a hot plasma . This is realized by magnetic fields. After a phenomenological description, a self-consistent MHD description of the plasma is introduced. Both equilibrium and (in)stability are discussed. The theory is interwoven with discussion of recent experimental results, hands-on experience and computer simulations of the topic.
