Weakly turbulent electron cloud transport in a plasma with an external electric field

The propagation of a fast electron cloud in a relatively cold and dense plasma in an electric field is investigated in the framework of weak turbulence theory. The dynamics of an electron cloud in

Spatiotemporal correlation functions in beam-driven plasmas with fluctuations

Using a reduced-parameter model of wave-particle interactions in a beam-driven plasma, the linear spatiotemporal correlation functions of wave and particle quantities are derived. These are found to

Wave-particle interactions in non-uniform plasma and the interpretation of Hard X-ray spectra in solar flares

Context. High energy electrons accelerated during solar flare are abundant in the solar corona and in the interplanetary space. Commonly, the number and the energy of non-thermal electrons at the Sun

Effect of turbulent density-fluctuations on wave-particle interactions and solar flare X-ray spectra

Aims. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the effect of turbulent background density-fluctuations on flare-accelerated electron transport in the solar corona. Methods. Using the quasi-linear

Langmuir Wave Electric Fields Induced by Electron Beams in the Heliosphere

Solar electron beams responsible for type III radio emission generate Langmuir waves as they propagate out from the Sun. The Langmuir waves are observed via in-situ electric field measurements. These

Statistics of beam-driven waves in plasmas with ambient fluctuations: Reduced-parameter approach

A reduced-parameter (RP) model of quasilinear wave-plasma interactions is used to analyze statistical properties of beam-driven waves in plasmas with ambient density fluctuations. The probability


Solar flare hard X-ray (HXR) spectra from Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectrometer (RHESSI) are normally interpreted in terms of purely collisional electron beam propagation, ignoring spatial

Nonrelativistic electron stream propagation in the solar atmosphere and type III radio bursts

Electron streams with type III burst characteristics are numerically modeled. The electronplasma wave quasilinear interaction is assumed to be the dominant velocity diffusion process. The quasilinear

Electron beam formation and stability

The dynamics of fast electrons streaming from the Sun through the interplanetary plasma is reviewed from the kinetic viewpoint. How can a bump appear on the tail of the electron distribution

Numerical simulation of type III solar radio bursts on meter- and hectometer-waves

Numerical simulation of type III bursts is made by the use of fully numerical scheme showing a general rule for obtaining a numerically stable difference scheme. Although the electron distribution

A dynamic theory of type III solar radio bursts

Numerous experimental data indicate that type III solar radio bursts are generated by the streams of fast electrons in the corona. The process of the electron acceleration in the flare region is, in

Interplanetary particle beams

The purpose of this paper is to review the observations of particle beams of the kind that are frequently observed in the interplanetary medium, usually but not always accompanying a solar flare.

Particle beams in the solar atmosphere: General overview

An overview of particle beams in the solar atmosphere is separated into discussions of (i) current-carrying beams, (ii) current-neutralized electron beams, and (iii) ion beams. The Alfvén-Lawson
