Anomalous transport coefficients in a magnetized turbulent plasma

  • Qiu Xiaoming (a1) and R. Balescu (a1)

Abstract

In this paper we generalize the formalism developed by Balescu and Paiva-Veretennicoff, valid for any kind of weak turbulence, for the determination of all the transport coefficients of an unmagnetized turbulent plasma, to the case of a magnetized one, and suggest a technique to avoid finding the inverse of the turbulent collision operator. The implicit plasmadynamical equations of a two-fluid plasma are presented by means of plasmadynamical variables. The anomalous transport coefficients appear in their natural places in these equations. It is shown that the necessary number of transport coefficients for describing macroscopically the magnetized turbulent plasma does not exceed the number for the unmagnetized one. The typical turbulent and gyromotion terms, representing dissipative effects peculiar to the magnetized system, which contribute to the frequency-dependent transport coefficients are clearly exhibited.
