Toroidal plasmas permeability tensor and dissipation of fast waves : Method of evaluation and some results
A method for the analytical treatment of the toroidal plasma electron dielectric permeability tensor has been developed, and simple expressions for some limiting cases have been obtained. Electron Landau and TTMP absorption of the fast waves in tokamaks are discussed in terms of nonlocality effects, including the effect of trapped and untrapped particles bounce resonances. The consideration of additional dissipation of the fast waves in tokamaks is founded on a comparison with cylindrical model Landau damping.
