This comprehensive description of hybrid plasma simulation models will provide a very useful summary and guide to the vast literature on this topic. It addresses researchers and graduate students knowledgeable about computational science and numerical analysis.

From the reviews:

"This book provides a very useful guide for researchers as well as graduate students in the field of plasma numerical modelization, primarily by hybrid methods that treat some aspects of the plasma dynamics kinematically and some others as fluids. The vast literature on the subject is summarized in a way that can rapidly be exploited by computer knowledgeable persons and a few exercises are proposed that can be used in courses in astrophysical plasmas." (Mathematical Reviews 2003g)
