How do you say "fusion" in Czech?

 (Click to view larger version...)
The Czech book Řízená termojaderná fúze pro každého (Controlled thermonuclear fusion for everyone) introduces the idea of fusion energy to the generally interested reader. In 17 chapters, the authors cover historical milestones, introduce the principles of fusion, describe the significant fusion facilities in the world, and conclude with the international ITER collaboration and an outlook on the future of fusion.

The book contains a useful glossary of fusion terms and 110 photos, charts and drawings to render the subject accessible to non-experts. The authors Milan Řípa, Jan Mlynář, František Žáček and Vladimír Weinzettl are scientists at the Institute of Plasma Physics Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, v.v.i..

The book, one of two general books about fusion energy available in the Czech language, has now been published in its third edition. It was published in 2011 by the Institute of Plasma Physics Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic as part of the series The Energy World which aims at popularizing different energy sources. The Czech electricity company CEZ Group supported the publication.
