Title: Adiabatic model of field reversal by fast ions in an axisymmetric open trap

Abstract

A model of field reversal by fast ions has been developed under the assumption of preservation of fast-ion adiabatic invariants. Analytical solutions obtained in the approximation of a narrow fast-ion layer and numerical solutions to the evolutionary problem are presented. The solutions demonstrate the process of formation of a field reversed configuration with parameters close to those of the planned experiment.
