    • Electron cyclotron heating and current drive using the electron Bernstein modes 

      McGregor, Duncan Ekundayo (University of St Andrews, 2007) - Thesis
      Electron Bernstein waves are a mode of oscillation in a plasma, thought a candidate for providing radiofrequency heating and non-inductive current drive in spherical tokamaks. Previous studies of these modes have relied ...
    • Equilibrium and dynamics of collisionless current sheets 

      Harrison, Michael George (University of St Andrews, 2009-06-24) - Thesis
      In this thesis examples of translationally invariant one-dimensional (1D) Vlasov-Maxwell (VM) equilibria are investigated. The 1D VM equilibrium equations are equivalent to the motion of a pseudoparticle in a conservative ...
    • Equilibrium and stability properties of collisionless current sheet models 

      Wilson, Fiona (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-28) - Thesis
      The work in this thesis focuses primarily on equilibrium and stability properties of collisionless current sheet models, in particular of the force-free Harris sheet model. A detailed investigation is carried out into ...
    • Maser radiation from collisionless shocks 

      Speirs, D. C.; Ronald, K.; Phelps, A. D. R.; Koepke, M. E.; Cairns, Robert Alan; Rigby, A.; Cruz, F.; Trines, R. M. G. M.; Bamford, R.; Kellet, B. J.; Albertazzi, B.; Cross, J. E.; Fraschetti, F.; Graham, P.; Kozlowski, P. M.; Kuramitsu, Y.; Miniati, F.; Morita, T.; Oliver, M.; Reville, B.; Sakawa, Y.; Sarkar, S.; Spindloe, C.; Koenig, M.; Silva, L. O.; Lamb, D. Q.; Tzeferacos, P.; Lebedev, S.; Gregori, G.; Bingham, R. (2019) - Journal article
      This paper describes a model of electron energization and cyclotron-maser emission applicable to astrophysical magnetized collisionless shocks. It is motivated by the work of Begelman, Ergun and Rees [Astrophys. J. 625 , ...
