Dear Colleagues,

as a follow-up of the Winter School in Les Houches last year a book on Trapped Charged Particles has just been published. It is a graduate textbook containing problems and solutions for every chapter, and treats many advanced topics concerning the physics of trapped charged particles. For those interersted, it will be on exposure (and sold with a special reduction) at the ECTI conference. Detailed information can be found here.
