    Since then, with advances in laboratory, fusion, space, and astrophysical plasma research, we have witnessed important devel opments toward the understanding of a variety of linear as well as nonlinear plasma phenomena, including plasma turbulence. Today, plasma physics stands as a well-developed discipline containing a unified body of powerful. These are transcriptions of the notes from which I teach the single semester course "Introduction to Plasma Physics". Despite the heroic efforts of Valerie Censabella (for which I am very grateful) to translate my hand-written materials into LaTeX, and extensive editing on my part, I don't doubt that there are many typographical errors.
