Title: Ion flow driven by waves in the ion cyclotron frequency range

Abstract

An ion kinetic equation is solved by expansion in a parameter corresponding to the small parameter of neoclassical transport theory and the small parameter of geometrical optics. A slab model with perpendicular stratification of the magnetic field is assumed, and a given RF field is present with a frequency corresponding to a modest multiple of the ion cyclotron frequency. The RF induced ion flow perpendicular to the magnetic field is calculated. The parallel flow may be large, but it cannot be calculated without an analysis of the electron transport.
