MHD Theory of Fusion Systems: Description

Use advanced math equations to determine the plasma transport theory. Calculate exact moments using the plasmas mass, momentum and energy and use the information to determine the MHD frequency. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)'s School of Engineering in Cambridge, MA, teaches this course on calculating and recording plasma movement. Students also learn about the factors that influence the structure of the ideal MHD and how they interact with one another. Professor Jeffrey Freidberg teaches this graduate level OpenCourseWare about using plasma transport theory to find configurations that work.

Lectures, notes and study materials for this course are available online. To learn more about this free OpenCourseWare, visit the MHD Theory of Fusion Systemscourse page.
