During the last decade impressive development and signi?cant advance of the physics of nonideal plasmas in astrophysics and in laboratories can be observed, creating new possibilities for experimental research. The enormous progress in laser technology, but also ion beam techniques, has opened new ways for the production and diagnosis of plasmas under extreme conditions, relevant for astrophysics and inertially con?ned fusion, and for the study of laser-matter interaction. In shock wave experiments, the equation of state and further properties of highly compressed plasmas can be investigated. This experimental progress has stimulated the further development of the statistical theory of nonideal plasmas. Many new results for thermodynamic and transport properties, for ionization kinetics, dielectric behavior, for the stopping power, laser-matter interaction, and relaxation processes have been achieved in the last decade. In addition to the powerful methods of quantum statistics and the theory of liquids, numerical simulations like path integral Monte Carlo methods and molecular dynamic simulations have been applied.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The authors give an in depth and up-to-date study of the physics and mathematics of nonideal plasmas. The emphasis of the book is, therefore, on strongly coupled many-particle systems. ... the authors integrate classical theory and quantum statistics to give a full physical description of strongly correlated plasmas. ... This is an interesting and well written book that can be a useful source for researchers in the field of plasma physics and quantum statistics. It could also be used as an advanced graduate level textbook." (Stephen Wollman, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006 e)

"In the present comprehensive work ... an introduction is given into the quantum statistics of equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems ... . the dynamical, the thermodynamic and the kinetic properties of strongly coupled plasmas are dealt with on a wide scale. ... The bibliography at the end of the volume includes relevant monographs and original papers. The book is intended as a graduate-level textbook. But it is also useful to researchers in the field of plasma physics and quantum statistics." (Claudia-Veronika Meister, Zentrablatt MATH, Vol. 1096 (22), 2006)
