Abstract

A PARALLEL KINETIC APPROACH TO THE CALCULATION OF TURBULENT CORRELATIONS AND TRANSPORT PROPERTIES IN TOKAMAKS IS PRESENTED. THE NONLINEAR KINETIC EQUATIONS OF THE THEORY WITH SUITABLE COLLISION OPERATORS ARE DERIVED FROM THE DRIFT KINETIC THEORY. THE SPECIFICATION OF A SINGLE FLUCTUATION SPECTRUM (SUCH AS THE PARALLEL VECTOR POTENTIAL) LEADS TO A PROBLEM OF DETERMINING THE QUASI-NEUTRAL PLASMA RESPONSE TO THE SPECTRUM IN QUESTION. THE SOLUTION OF THE PROBLEM USING A BORN-FEYNMAN PERTURBATION SERIES IN THE ASSUMED SMALLNESS OF THE FLUCTUATION AMPLITUDE IS DEVELOPED IN DETAIL. SUBJECT TTHER WEAK RESTRICTIONS, THE SPECIFIED SPECTRAL FUNCTION IS SHOWN TO DETERMINE (UNDER QUASI-NEUTRAL CONDITIONS NEGLECTING TRAPPED PARTICLE AND ANISOTROPIC PRESSURE EFFECTS) ALL OTHER FLUCTUATION SPECTRA AND TRANSPORT PROPERTIES. A DETAILED COMPARISON OF THE THEORETICAL RESULTS WITH TEXT MEASUREMENTS WILL BE PRESENTED IN PART II.
