Hamiltonian stochastic processes induced by successive wave-particle interactions in stimulated Raman scattering

Abstract : The long-time dynamics of particles interacting resonantly with large-amplitude coherent plasma wave is investigated in the kinetic regime of stimulated Raman scattering in which particle trapping plays a major role and which corresponds to a high value of the parameter k EPW D , where k EPW is the plasma wave vector and D is the electron Debye length. Using Vlasov simulations, the dynamics of such particles become stochastic when repeated wave-particle interactions take place. For small values of the ratio auto / b of the autocorrelation time to the bounce time of particle condition usually met in backward propagation of the scattered wave the turbulent regime results in the merging of phase-space trapping vortices according to a weak turbulencelike scenario. For high values of auto / b or narrow spectrum of longitudinal electric field as met when only one plasma wave is present, the stochasticity is now induced by particle trapping, detrapping, and retrapping in the adiabatically fluctuating field. The stochastic transitions performed by resonant particles above or below the separatrix limit in phase space determine now the long-time plasma evolution.
