Fusion Theory: Reading books, but which ones?

It may be difficult to separate "theory" from "application," but let''s see if this helps facilitate the discussion.

Fusion Theory: Reading books, but which ones?

Post by Werner Engel » Sun Apr 27, 2014 3:14 pm

Hi - also to german speaking fusioneers!

As I read a lot in the forum about people who did not dive into fusion theory enough bevore posting,
here is a picture of the books I really loved during my first contact with fusion.

There are also some german ones - I really liked "Plasmaphysik und Fusionsforschung" from Dr. Michael Kaufmann (Max-Planck Institut für Plasmaphysik in Munich) - if you are through with this and can understand it, you know what a Fusor does!

for english speakers "http://www.amazon.fr/Introduction-Plasm ... led+Fusion" is a very good start.
Also the http://www.amazon.fr/Concise-Encycloped ... ear+energy explains the concepts for a lot of technical terms.

We have a books and reference forum that suggests some texts or radiation physics, neutron counting, and nuclear physics in general.

Fusion physics related to D-D fusion is very straight forward in our case and very easy to do. Fusion needed to produce net power output is so complex, it has never been done yet.
