    The book looks at non-relativistic, fully ionized, non-degenerate, quasi-neutral, and weakly coupled plasma. Intended for the student market, the text provides a concise and cohesive introduction to plasma physics theory, and offers a solid foundation for students wishing to take higher level courses in plasma physics. The present book provides a contemporary systematic treatment of shock waves in high-temperature collisionless plasmas as are encountered in near Earth space and in Astrophysics. It consists of two parts. Part I develops the complete theory of shocks in dilute hot plasmas under the assumption of absence of collisions among the c. Space physics in Auburn University's Physics Department focuses upon the region in the space around the Earth called the magnetosphere. The results are fundamentally important to the transport processes at plasma boundary in space and laboratory plasmas. The particle of most interest are, of course, the charged ions and electrons. The COSPAR publication Advances in Space Research (ASR) is an open journal covering all areas of space research including: space studies of the Earth's surface, meteorology, climate, the Earth-Moon system, planets and small bodies of the solar system, upper atmospheres, ionospheres and magnetospheres of the Earth and planets including reference atmospheres, .

Plasma (from Ancient Greek πλάσμα, meaning 'moldable substance') is one of the four fundamental states of matter, and was first described by chemist Irving Langmuir in the s. It consists of a gas of ions – atoms which have some of their orbital electrons removed – and free electrons.

Plasma can be artificially generated by heating a neutral gas or subjecting it to a. ↑ M.J.

For example, some space plasmas have been measured to be lower in density than 10 to the power per cubic meter or (10exp)/m3 - 13 orders of magnitude less than the scale shown in the figure!

On the other extreme, quark-gluon plasmas (although mediated via the strong force field versus the electromagnetic field) are extremely dense.This rigorous explanation of plasmas is relevant to diverse plasma applications such as controlled fusion, astrophysical plasmas, solar physics, magnetospheric plasmas, and plasma thrusters.

More thorough than previous texts, it exploits new powerful mathematical techniques to develop deeper insights into plasma by: The research activity of the Space and Plasma Physics (SPP) group focuses on space plasmas, ranging from high altitude lightning to shocks in supernovae, and laboratory plasmas, ranging from semiconductors to laboratory devices.
