This school is the 58th in the series organized at the Culham Science Centre in Oxfordshire, a leading site for research in plasma physics and controlled nuclear fusion carried out under the auspices of EUROfusion and the UK Atomic Energy Authority.
he aim of the Summer School is to provide an introduction to the fundamental principles of plasma physics, together with a broad understanding of its fields of application. We assume no previous knowledge of the subject, but familiarity with electromagnetism and applied mathematics at first degree level will be helpful. The course is directed and supervised by Dr. Michael Fitzgerald and is co-ordinated by Mr. Andrew Wise. The school will cover fundamental plasma physics, as well as important topics in fusion, astrophysical, laser and low temperature plasmas.
Lecturers are drawn from the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE), the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) together with leading European universities. All are renowned experts in their fields.
