  • Invited and contributed papers presented at the Joint Varenna-Lausanne International Workshop on "Theory of Fusion Plasmas", Varenna, Italy, August 27-30 2002, by the Theory Group


This report contains nine of the papers (1 invited and 8 contributed) that were presented at the Joint Varenna-Lausanne International Workshop in August 2002. Meetings of the workshop are held every two years. The topics selected for the 2002 workshop were:
- Anomalous Transport (Turbulence, Coherent Structures, Microinstabilities)
- RF Heating and Current Drive
- Non Axisymmetric Configurations
- Macroinstabilities and Magnetic Reconnections
- Theoretical Aspects of Plasma-Edge Physics and Divertors

The proceedings of the workshop will be published around December 2002 in the series "Theory of Fusion Plasmas". Abstracts of the invited papers, and the full texts of most of the contributed papers are also available online at:
