Plasma physics is an integral part of statistical physics, complete with its own basic theories. Designed as a two-volume set, Statistical Plasma Physics is intended for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses on plasma and statistical physics, and as such, its presentation is self-contained and should be read without difficulty by those with backgrounds in classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics, and statistics. Major topics include: plasma phenomena in nature, kinetic equations, plasmas and dielectric media, electromagnetic properties of Vlasov plasmas in thermodynamic equilibria, transient processes, and instabilities. Statistical Plasma Physics, Volume II, treats subjects in the field of condensed plasma physics, with applications to condensed matter physics, atomic physics, nuclear physics, and astrophysics.

Setsuo Ichimaru received his Ph.D from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was a member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, a faculty member at the University of Illinois, and at the University of Tokyo. Professor Ichimaru is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, the Japanese Physical Society, the Japanese Astronomical Society, and the International Astronomical Union. He is the author of Basic Principles of Plasma Physics, and Plasma Physics: An Introduction to Statistical Physics of Charged Particles.
