About this item

The idea of spheromaks is to harness magnetohydrodynamic instability in such a way as to let a plasma relax or self-organize into a toroidal confinement configuration, says Bellan, which otherwise would have to be created artificially at great expense. He assumes a modest background in plasma physics but no prior knowledge of spheromaks. Whenever possible he derives the mathematics from first principles, but also discusses the practical experimental issues that must be addressed in order to make real spheromaks.
