Theory of Alfvén eigenmode instabilities and related alpha particle transport in JET D-T plasmas
Linear and nonlinear models for anomalous alpha particle transport due to collective instabilities are reviewed. The linear stability analysis is applied to the comparison of measured and computed Alfvén Eigenmodes in tokamaks (spectroscopy). Scenarios for nonlinear wave evolution and fast ion redistribution are discussed.
