Linear response theory of a turbulent magnetized plasma
Abstract
It is proposed that the dominant nonlinear effects of highfrequency turbulence on the lowfrequency mode are composed of two parts. One is the electron orbit modification due to the ponderomotive force, and the other is the modulation effect of the ponderomotive force. The effective dielectric constant of ioncyclotron waves in the presence of electroncyclotron turbulence is obtained by using the linear response theory of a turbulent plasma. The critical size and the Reynolds number of a turbulent plasma are defined.
