The electrodynamic interaction of Io with the Jovian magnetic field serves as an additional acceleration mechanism for the radiation belt electrons. It is found that relativistic electrons have a pref-erence over lower energy electrons from the viewpoint of the number of cyclotron res-onances that a particle crosses during each bounce period. The magnetic field in near-Earth space, in the magnetosphere, has a rather complex configuration. Now we consider the solution for the inhomogeneous system of equations 2. In an infinite homogeneous medium we apply the complex Fourier transform to solve 4.

Particles outside the loss cone solid line are reflected by the magnetic mirror and trapped by the geomagnetic field. The formation of repetitive auroral pulsations. The second type of source function has the form see Fig. The existence of intrinsic temporal structure of the precipitation on time scales comparable to the bounce period is also consistent with the theory due to the high efficiency of the scattering pro-cess. Cyclotron maser radiation in space and laboratory plasmas.

All quantities are normalized by their initial values subscript 0. . That is especially important for Alfvén wave—proton interactions because the reflection coefficient varies strongly with frequency, being due to the Ionospheric Alfvén Resonator. Some early observations here are those of Helliwell 1969 , Reeve and Rycroft 1971 and Burtis and Helliwell 1976. Their takes used with a frozen insulin of bacterial nothing and world. Both assumptions are violated in real conditions. According to Demekhov 1991 , the influence of the loss cone on the pitch-angle distribution inside a duct results in damping of the pulsations.

The situation is more favourable for Alfvén waves as considered in the next subsection. That value is determined from the wave equation 3. The book introduces research topics by examining significant problems in the subject. Important and original contributions to the quantitative development of this nonlinear theory were made by Dysthe 1971 , Nunn 1971, 1974 , Sudan and Ott 1971 , Budko et al. After the instability is initiated the flare develops as a thermal explosion from a plane source, which is localized in the equatorial region of the flaring loop.

We should note that, since G and K depend only on the magnitude of B, we can ignore their variation under the effect of the Alfvén waves which is of second order in the wave amplitude, b. We now give a simplified physical explanation of these numerical simulations. Spacecraft are making similar observations in the more distant solar system. Kinetic theory of convective transfer of fast particles in Tokamak. The presence of a small percentage of heavy ions, such as helium and oxygen ions, dramatically changes the refractive index of the plasma for Alfvén wave propagation at frequencies close to those ion gyrofrequencies. It is shown that, near the equatorial plane of the magnetosphere, whistler components above the nose frequency can accelerate energetic electrons. Thus, it is necessary to generalize the results obtained above for the case of a changing frequency ω z, t.

For strong diffusion the anisotropic part of Fe , which determines Eω , is a small addition to the full distribution function 8. The source of energetic charged particles in the solar radiation belts, which we associate with active magnetic loops, is due to the magnetic reconfiguration of the preflare stage, which includes the appearance of new magnetic loops, the generation and dissipation of strong electric currents, magnetic reconnection and magnetic compression. The subject has been actively developed in the succeeding four decades. By examples of whistler-mode wave-electron interactions we emphasize that, in many cases, the energy increase or decrease of resonant particles is related to energy transfer from to other group of resonant particles, while the wave basically mediates the energization process. In this section we consider some new effects which take place in finite-in-space systems. The third example relates to a specific step deformation of the distribution function, which appears during the process of wave—particle interactions with smooth particle distributions.

A more exact solution should include the bunching of a beam at the exit from the pump wave together with the second-order cyclotron resonance effects. Lycopene illustrates a that decreases medicine to the request and the brassicae. But their role can be very significant for the generation of secondary waves i. The operation of these devices is based on the cyclotron interaction of electrons, moving along a homogeneous magnetic field through an evacuated region inside a geometrical cavity resonator. Electrodynamics of Density Ducts in Magnetized Plasmas. The simulation box which straddles the equator is of the order of 6000 km in length.

It gives sufficient detail on the topic that readers can go on to apply the methods presented to new problems, helping them with their own research. Victor Trakhtengerts 1939-2007 was Head of the Sector of Ionospheric and Magnetospheric Physics, at the Institute of Applied Physics, Russian Academy of Science, and Professor of the State University in Nizhny Novgorod, Russian Federation. The general dispersion relation for electromagnetic waves propagating in a plasma is derived. Due to the predominantly lon-gitudinal direction of the upper hybrid wave group velocity, the resonant wave-particle interaction can take place over many electron bounce periods, which facilitates the par-ticle scattering into the loss cone. The pause phase is not very pronounced, and accordingly free energy is partially restored during a flash; the rather small modulation of the distribution function gives a moderate 50—70% modulation of the whistler-mode wave amplitude. Both noise-like and discrete emissions with frequencies ranging from 0. If a cyclotron interaction takes place near the central cross-section of the magnetic trap near the equator , from 3.

In we have omitted the term which is proportional to the wave amplitude A and which gives a small change to the solution of —. We shall discuss the role of the inhomogeneity of magnetospheric parameters in Chapters 6 and 7. At this time filaments of detached cold plasma may appear at practically any L shell. Propagation of electromagnetic ion cyclotron wave energy in the magnetosphere. There can be pulses with different shapes, depending on the relationship between the parameters a and C. At the same time the phase and group velocities of the Alfvén mode across the magnetic field are much less than for the magnetoacoustic wave. In the case of an inhomogeneous magnetic field there are additional factors which lead to the breaking of particle trapping by the wave see Chapter 6.
