Theory of plasma heating by the use of waves
The resistivity in the centre of a confined fusion plasma is usually orders of magnitude smaller than that at the plasma edge. In order to heat the centre of the plasma with waves, local plasma heating has to be achieved by placing either a wave resonance (ion-ion-hybrid, Alfvén, W(pe) or a particle resonance of the cyclotron type near or into the region in question.
