Nonlinear gyrokinetic equations for low-frequency electromagnetic waves in general plasma equilibria
A nonlinear gyrokinetic formalism for low‐frequency (less than the cyclotron frequency) microscopic electromagnetic perturbations in general magnetic field configurations is developed. The nonlinearExpand

Kinetic processes in plasma heating by resonant mode conversion of Alfvén wave
An externally applied oscillating magnetic field (at a frequency near 1 MHz for typical tokamak parameters) resonantly mode converts to the kinetic Alfven wave, the Alfven wave with the perpendicularExpand

Modeling the evolution of chorus waves into plasmaspheric hiss
[1] Plasmaspheric hiss (PH) is a band-limited, incoherent whistler mode emission found predominantly in the plasmasphere or high-density plasma regions in the near-Earth space environment. Since itsExpand

High- n ideal and resistive shear Alfvén waves in tokamaks
Abstract Ideal and resistive MHD equations for the shear Alfven waves are studied in a low-β toroidal model by employing the high-n ballooning formalism. The ion sound effects are neglected. For anExpand

Physics of Alfvén Waves
Alfven waves discovered by Hannes Alfven (1942, Nature 150 405) are fundamental electromagnetic oscillations prevalent in magnetically confined plasmas existing in the nature and laboratories. AlfvenExpand

Anisotropic Alfvén‐ballooning modes in Earth's magnetosphere
We have carried out a theoretical analysis of the stability and parallel structure of coupled shear Alfven and slow magnetosonic waves in Earth's inner magnetosphere (i.e., at equatorial distancesExpand
