I thought some people here may find this interesting. There is a free open course on Plasma Physics currently being offered by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology on the site edx.org. It seems anyone who is familiar with calculus and introductory E&M should be able to handle it.

This does look very interesting. I just signed up, but unfortunately the class started 2 weeks ago, and I've already missed one assignment... It's my college experience all over again.

I started working on that course and the math reminded me why I quit college after getting an AA degree and started building things that didn't require any math heavier than trig and an occasional bessel function or FFT. I still plan to "audit" the course (after all, it's free) as I'm sure that I can still learn something.

You should "fast forward" to the last 2 chapters - muuuuch more interesting for us!
