Book Title: Gas discharge physics

Author: Yuri P. Raizer

Book Description:

This book has been a valuable resource for my students and me during last ten years. This is the best text on gas discharges currently available. The book also provides in depth coverage of electrical breakdown phenomena in variety of systems, ranging from naturally occurring lightning discharges to systems utilizing discharge plasmas for materials processing. I have used it extensively in my undergraduate and graduate courses on plasmas at Penn State, as well as in my everyday research work. I have had a privilege to meet Yuri Raizer personally at Leiden University, The Netherlands, in May of 2005, and now I am very proud to be able to choose this book as part of the Penn State's Promotion and Tenure Recognition Program and to associate my name with it.
