There are also a lot of books on the subject, from the complex through
to the general. I recommend trying some of the earlier historical
stuff. (Amasa Bishop on Project Sherwood, for example.) This is
because they have enough basic plasma physics in them to start you
off. They are also interesting to read.
On plasma technology, get hold of back issues of the magazine Physics
World for my own excellent account of the subject. It appeared about
two years ago.
