ANOMALOUS TRANSPORT IN TOROIDAL CONFINEMENT
The objectives are to explain the methods and underlying assumptions of non-linear plasma wave theory and its limitations, to illustrate this with a few examples, and to summarize how its predictions fit experimental results. After an elementary account of drift waves, weak turbulence analysis is outlined, including quasi-linear theory and mode coupling. This is followed by a description of strong turbulence methods, i.e. renormalization and the direct interaction approximation. Experimental observation is then summarized and compared with prediction.
