We investigate the possibility of stochastic acceleration of background low-energy electrons by turbulent plasma waves. We consider the resonant interaction of the charged particles with all branches of the transverse plasma waves propagating parallel to a uniform magnetic eld. Numerical results and asymptotic analytic solutions valid at non-relativistic… (More)
