    The question of whether the ‘‘Landau-fluid’’ description of wave-particle resonances [e.g., Hammett and Perkins, Phys. Rev. Lett. 64, 3019 (1990)] can describe nonlinear Landau damping is addressed. It is found that this model can provide an adequate description of the...

    The electron surface mode dispersion relation, including Landau damping, is obtained for a vacuum-plasma interface. Unlike previous work, the interface is permitted to have a finite width and no wall boundary conditions are assumed. When the density gradient scale length L[sub n] is large...

    Space plasmas typically possess a particle distribution function with an enhanced high-energy tail that is well modeled by a generalized Lorentzian (or kappa) distribution with spectral index κ. The modified plasma dispersion function Z[sup *, sub κ] (ξ) [Summers and Thorne, Phys....

    This paper shows how the concepts commonly used for a Debye plasma—Landau damping, collisional damping, short-range and long-range collisions, and plasma waves—must be revised to describe a nonideal electron-ion plasma. The degrees of freedom of a nonideal plasma are divided into...

    It can be shown that whistler waves with low parallel phase velocity can be subject to strong cyclotron damping, even when the wave frequency is well below the cyclotron frequency. This resonance arises as a result of the Doppler effect which is proportional to the plasma density and increases...
