Waves in plasmas by Thomas Howard Stix( Book )

12 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and Japanese and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To illustrate the development of some fundamental concepts in plasma waves, a number of experimental observations, going back over half a century, are reviewed. Particular attention is paid to the phenomena of dispersion, collisionfree damping, finite-Larmor-radius and cyclotron and cyclotron-harmonic effects, nonlocal response, and stochasticity. One may note not only the constructive interplay between observation and theory and experiment but also that major advances have come from each of the many disciplines that invoke plasma physics as a tool, including radio communication, astrophysics, controlled fusion, space physics, and basic research

On Current Penetration and Plasma Disruption by Thomas Howard Stix( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is suggested that, in a tokamak discharge, the initial rapid current penetration and the disruptive instability may each be attributed to a type of nonlinear double tearing instability which causes growth and overlap of radially separated magnetic islands. The ensuing reconnection and braiding of magnetic lines would enhance local radial heat and particle transport, and could permit rapid redistribution of plasma current, inducing positive or negative spikes in the loop-voltage signal.

Stochasticity and Superadiabaticity in Radiofrequency Plasma Heating by Thomas Howard Stix( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In a plasma subject to radiofrequency fields, it is only the resonant particles - comprising just a minor portion of the total velocity distribution - which are strongly affected. Under near-fusion conditions, thermalization by Coulomb collisions is slow, and noncollisional stochasticity can play an important role in reshaping f(v). It is found that the common rf interactions, including Landau, cyclotron and transit-time damping, can be fitted in a unified manner by a simple two-step one-parameter [epsilon] mapping which can display collision-free stochastic or adiabatic (also called superadiabatic) behavior, depending on the choice of epsilon. The effect on the evolution of the space averaged f (x, v, t) is reasonably well described by a pseudo-stochastic diffusion function, D/sub PS/(v, epsilon) which is the quasilinear diffusion coefficient but with appropriate widening of the delta-function spikes. Coulomb collisions, leading to D/sub Coul/(v) which may be added and directly compared to D/sub PS/(v, epsilon), are introduced by Langevin terms in the mapping equations
