Plasma

I started to teach myself about plasma physics, in particular, magnetohydrodynamics. I became aware of the viability of a fusion reactor with the Field Reverse Configuration (FRC), which I’m trying to understand, and I wanted to read up as much as I can on it.

Notes I take:

plasma_grande.pdf (notes in “wide” format)

plasma (notes in letter paper format)
