Title: Alfven instabilities effects on energetic particles

Abstract

In the present work, a review of shear Alfven instabilities effects on energetic particles is presented and important results of both theory and experiments are emphasized. Open problems and possible topics for future discussions are also indicated, such as those related to the observation of 'frequency chirping modes' associated with fast minority ion tails produced during ICRF heating on TFTR, which may be interpreted as Energetic Particle Modes (EPM)
