The third, revised edition of this popular textbook and reference, which has been translated into Russian and Chinese, expands the comprehensive and balanced coverage of nuclear reactor physics to include recent advances in understanding of this topic. The first part of the book covers basic reactor physics, including, but not limited to nuclear reaction data, neutron diffusion theory, reactor criticality and dynamics, neutron energy distribution, fuel burnup, reactor types and reactor safety. The second part then deals with such physically and mathematically more advanced topics as neutron transport theory, neutron slowing down, resonance absorption, neutron thermalization, perturbation and variational methods, homogenization, nodal and synthesis methods, and space-time neutron dynamics. For ease of reference, the detailed appendices contain nuclear data, useful mathematical formulas, an overview of special functions as well as introductions to matrix algebra and Laplace transforms. With its focus on conveying the in-depth knowledge needed by advanced student and professional nuclear engineers, this text is ideal for use in numerous courses and for self-study by professionals in basic nuclear reactor physics, advanced nuclear reactor physics, neutron transport theory, nuclear reactor dynamics and stability, nuclear reactor fuel cycle physics and other important topics in the field of nuclear reactor physics.

This revised and enlarged second edition of the popular textbook and reference contains comprehensive treatments of both the established foundations of magnetic fusion plasma physics and of the newly developing areas of active research. It concludes with a look ahead to fusion power reactors of the future. The well-established topics of fusion plasma physics -- basic plasma phenomena, Coulomb scattering, drifts of charged particles in magnetic and electric fields, plasma confinement by magnetic fields, kinetic and fluid collective plasma theories, plasma equilibria and flux surface geometry, plasma waves and instabilities, classical and neoclassical transport, plasma-materials interactions, radiation, etc. -- are fully developed from first principles through to the computational models employed in modern plasma physics.
The new and emerging topics of fusion plasma physics research -- fluctuation-driven plasma transport and gyrokinetic/gyrofluid computational methodology, the physics of the divertor, neutral atom recycling and transport, impurity ion transport, the physics of the plasma edge (diffusive and non-diffusive transport, MARFEs, ELMs, the L-H transition, thermal-radiative instabilities, shear suppression of transport, velocity spin-up), etc. -- are comprehensively developed and related to the experimental evidence. Operational limits on the performance of future fusion reactors are developed from plasma physics and engineering constraints, and conceptual designs of future fusion power reactors are discussed.

" With brief, humorous stories the author paints a vivid picture of his development from a Southern boy more concerned with fishing and football into an applied nuclear physicist. His stories from youth, insider's view of academia and firsthand account of a life in physics should interest a wide audience." -- Kirkus Reviews This book is both a scientific memoir of a prominent applied physicist and a chronicle of the history of his family from the earliest days of America. The first part of this expansive memoir traces the Stacy family from the original settling of Georgia in the Midway Church community in the 18th century, their migration to southwest Georgia to escape the devastation left behind by Sherman's army in the 19th century, through the author's unusual experiences as a youth in the vanished world of the small-town South of the mid-20th century. His serendipitous path from southwest Georgia through Georgia Tech and the Marine Corps to the world of applied nuclear science is amusingly described. The second part of the book is a broad scientific memoir covering the author's advanced education at Georgia Tech and MIT as an applied nuclear physicist and his 50 years of internationally recognized research, design and teaching about nuclear reactors and nuclear fusion. This memoir provides unique insights into the history of physics and into the world of applied nuclear physics laboratories and of a major research university, as well as an interesting account of the author's personal life, family, friendships, travels and reading.

Fusion Plasma Physics (Paperback): Weston M. Stacey Fusion Plasma Physics (Paperback)

R2,962 Discovery Miles 29 620 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Nuclear fusion has the potential to become the most important energy source of the new century. But still many problems, as e.g. the confinement of the plasma, are not yet solved. Thus they are subject to intense research which drives a rapid evolvement of this field of nuclear physics, and generates the need for an up-to-date textbook for graduate students.
This state-of-the-art textbook assembles the material for a modern course, and is aimed at graduate and advanced undergraduate students. It both introduces the fundamental principles and theories of fusion plasma physics, and presents the most recent topics from various sources in a systematic and concise way. Each chapter is rounded off with a set of exercises.
