Gyrofluid analysis of electron $\beta_e$ effects on collisionless reconnection

  title={Gyrofluid analysis of electron \$\beta\_e\$ effects on collisionless reconnection},
  author={Camille Granier and D. Borgogno and Daniela Grasso and Emanuele Tassi},
The linear and nonlinear evolutions of the tearing instability in a collisionless plasma with a strong guide field are analyzed on the basis of a two-field Hamiltonian gyrofluid model. The model is valid for a low ion temperature and a finite βe. The finite βe effect implies a magnetic perturbation along the guide field direction and electron finite Larmor radius effects. A Hamiltonian derivation of the model is presented. A new dispersion relation of the tearing instability is derived for the… 


Nonlinear gyrofluid simulations of collisionless reconnection
The Hamiltonian gyrofluid model recently derived by Waelbroeck et al. [Phys. Plasmas 16, 032109 (2009)] is used to investigate nonlinear collisionless reconnection with a strong guide field by means
A reduced Landau-gyrofluid model for magnetic reconnection driven by electron inertia
An electromagnetic reduced gyrofluid model for collisionless plasmas, accounting for electron inertia, finite ion Larmor radius effects and Landau-fluid closures for the electron fluid is derived by

A Lie-Poisson bracket is presented for a five-field gyrofluid model, thereby showing the model to be Hamiltonian. The model includes the effects of magnetic field curvature and describes the
