Title: Non-Markovian velocity diffusion in plasma turbulence
Author: Xia, Huajuan
Abstract: The behavior of charged particles placed in random electric fields in a fully ionized plasma can be observed through test particle computer simulations . In a weak field , the observed diffusion rate in velocity space is known to be in good agreement with the conventional quasilinear theory . However , as the field amplitude increases , the velocity diffusion is found to reveal its time -dependent nature , or non -Markovian property . Such a non -Markovian process is studied in detail both analytically and numerically .
