Plasma modes, periodicity and symplectic structure
A group theoretical formulation of the so-called "ballooning" or "extended variable" representation, commonly adopted for the study of the linear eigenmodes of short wavelength excitations in a toroidal, axisymmetric electromagnetic plasma, is presented. With the help of this novel formulation, this representation is generalised so as to include the non-linear evolution of the excitations.
