This book is intended for senior college and graduate students interested in the physics of a weakly ionized gas. It deals with the main concepts of the physics of weakly ionized plasmas and describes the characteristics of a practically realizable plasma. The book examines the properties of a weakly ionized gas, the propagation of radiation in such gases, and the elementary interactions between radiation and gas. As an example of a specific plasma it considers the properties of the weakly ionized gas of the earth's upper atmosphere.
