  Controlled Thermonuclear Reactions. An Introduction to Theory and Experiment. By Samuel Glasstone and Ralph H. Lovberg. Prepared under the auspices of the Office of Technical Information, United Author: Basil Schonland. This book covers the basic principles of both fusion and plasma physics, examining their combined application for driving controlled thermonuclear energy. The author begins by explaining the underlying scientific theory, and then goes on to explore the nuances of deployment within thermonuclear by: Nuclear fusion is a reaction in which two or more atomic nuclei are combined to form one or more different atomic nuclei and subatomic particles (neutrons or protons).The difference in mass between the reactants and products is manifested as either the release or absorption of difference in mass arises due to the difference in atomic "binding energy" between the atomic nuclei. Plasma Physics and the Problem of Controlled Thermonuclear Reactions, Volume IV by M.A. Leontovich (ed) and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at

Thermonuclear reactions occurring in the Sun (thermonuclear fusion of deuterium and tritium) are the source of solar energy. Because of those reactions, the temperature of the Sun's core is at the level of 10 7 K. Density of the Sun's core is approximately times higher than that of water. The Sun consists approximately of 80% hydrogen and 20% helium; other elements constitute only %.
