Abstract

An introduction to several theories describing wave - particle interactions is presented ; various concepts corresponding to different issues are made precise, namely resonant particles interaction with normal modes or ballistic modes, weak and strong nonlinear effects, quasi-Gaussian or self-consistent field theories, weak coupling of linear or nonlinear objects. The specific features of the clump theory and of the turbulent trapping model are displayed with a particular emphasis on their respective domain of applicability ; their connection with the direct interaction approximation is discussed.
