Those subjects and others are discussed in depth in chapters 2—9. Particular emphasis is naturally given to the results from the larger tokamaks: Want to Read Currently Reading Read. The fourth edition has been completely revised, toksmaks all aspects up-to-date and describing the development of tokamaks to the point of producing significant fusion power.

Since the first introductory account of tokamaks inwhen the tokamak had become the predominant device in the attempt to achieve a useful power source from the thermonuclear fusion, and the developments and advances in the subject covered in the second edition infollowing substantial research on large tokamaks the long awaited achievement of significant amounts of fusion power and the problems involved in designing and building a tokamak reactorthe emphasis has been on preparing the ground for an experimental reactor.
