Our original motivation of this study is related to the problem of the "corkscrew,"1 which is a device to inject charged particles "resonantly" into thermonuclear fusion devices. Wingerson's original idea was the following: If an external helical magnetic field perturbation is applied in such a way that the pitch of the perturbation is tuned continuously to the orbit pitch of the injected particle, then the particle can be "resonantly" accelerated perpendicularly to the main field, and trapped… CONTINUE READING
