Abstract

The equations of quasilinear theory are derived for a uniformly magnetized inhomogeneous plasma interacting with electromagnetic field fluctuations. The derivation avoids the use of the random phase approximation. The equations are formulated in a way that allows the identification of corrections arising from a finite Larmor radius to inhomogeneity scale ratio. These equations possess the necessary local conservation properties, and require no assumption on the ratio of the Larmor radius to the fluctuation wavelength.
