Space-dependent quasi-linear theory of lower-hybrid waves
The quasi-linear diffusion coefficients for the inherently space-dependent wave amplitudes in lower hybrid heating and current drive experiments are derived and compared with the usual space-independent approximation. The distribution function is derived and the dependence on the radio-frequency field amplitude gradient of the plateau, which is an essential quantity in the theoretical description of LH experiments, is stressed.
