Stationary selfconsistent solutions of the Vlasov-Maxwell system in a magnetized inhomogeneous plasma (so called Vlasov equilibria) provide the natural starting point for the investigation of plasma stability and of the nonlinear development of plasma instabilities in collisionless or weakly collisional regimes. In view of the different mechanisms that drive these instabilities, we discuss Vlasov equilibria with both density and temperature gradients. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Abstract

Stationary selfconsistent solutions of the Vlasov-Maxwell system in a magnetized inhomogeneous plasma (so called Vlasov equilibria) provide the natural starting point for the investigation of plasma stability and of the nonlinear development of plasma instabilities in collisionless or weakly collisional regimes. In view of the different mechanisms that drive these instabilities, we discuss Vlasov equilibria with both density and temperature gradients. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
