Transition between saturation regimes of gyrokinetic turbulence.

A gyrokinetic model of ion temperature gradient driven turbulence in magnetized plasmas is used to study the injection, nonlinear redistribution, and collisional dissipation of free energy in the saturated turbulent state over a broad range of driving gradients and collision frequencies. The dimensionless parameter L(T)/L(C), where L(T) is the ion… CONTINUE READING
