Ronald C. Davidson is professor of physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Ronald C. from Princeton University. Dr. Davidson has served as chairman of the Magnetic Fusion Advisory Committee as well as director of the MIT Plasma Fusion Center. He is the author of more than 200 journal articles and books in pure and applied plasma physics and is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a recipient of the Department of Energy Distinguished Associates Award.

A nonneutral plasma is a many-body collection of charged particles in which there is not overall charge neutrality.

Ronald Crosby Davidson (3 July 1941 – 19 May 2016) was a Canadian physicist, professor, and scientific administrator who worked in the United States. He served as the first director of the MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center from 1978 to 1988, and as director of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory from 1991 to 1996. He had been Professor of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton University since 1991. Davidson received the . c ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This book on nonneutral plasma theory originated in a series of graduate lec- lectures at the University o. . c. degree from McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, in 1963. Princeton University conferred upon him the P. Theory of Nonneutral Plasmas s relevant to several diverse areas of physics dealing with plasma,ystems with large self fields (collective-effect accelerators, relativistic slectron beams, d nonneutral plasmas, ixperiments for stripping of heavy ions). ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This book on nonneutral plasma theory originated in a series of graduate lec- lectures at the University of Maryland, and several people have contributed, directly or indirectly, to its content. Davidson, professor of physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 1978, has been named director of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL). Davidson's new position began on January 1. Davidson joined the physics faculty of MIT in 1978

A nonneutral plasma is a many-body collection of charged particles in which there is not overall charge neutrality. Such systems are characterized by intense self-electric fields, and in high-current configurations by intense self-magnetic fields. Nonneutral plasmas, like electrically neutral plasmas, exhibit a broad range of collective properties, such as plasma waves, instabilities, and Debye shielding. Moreover, the intense self fields in a nonneutral plasma can have a large influence on detailed plasma behavior and stability properties.Since the early 1970s, this important area of physics has developed into a diverse and sophisticated subfield of pure and applied plasma physics. Physics of Nonneutral Plasmas is a graduate-level text which covers a broad range of topics related to the fundamental properties and applications of nonneutral plasmas. The subject matter is treated systematically from first principles using a unified theoretical approach, and the emphasis is on the development of basic concepts that illustrate the underlying physical processes. The book includes 138 problems, 143 figures and illustrations, and the results from several classic experiments illustrating fundamental processes in nonneutral plasmas and coherent electromagnetic wave generation by relativistic electrons. Its thorough treatment of the subject gives it broad and lasting appeal to graduate students and researchers in the field.
