Deriving the electron kinetic theory to describe low temperature plasmas created in the laboratory with an electrical discharge, this book presents the main optical spectroscopic diagnostics used to characterize such plasmas. These are then presented from the point of view of a Statistical and Plasma Physics and b Atomic and...
This book provides an overview of the field of quantum fluids. It presents analogies and differences between polariton and atomic quantum fluids and explains a new type of quantum fluid with specific characteristics.

This text is primarily intended to accompany an advanced undergraduate course in atomic physics. However, the elementary atomic physics of the early chapters should be accessible to undergraduates first being introduced to the subject. Its experimental basis is strongly emphasized.
