Unformatted text preview: damping due to resonant particles assuming that  ωΩ  /kv t ± 1 so that the thermal corrections are weak. The result is the cyclotron damping rate, γ =√ π ω k 1 + k 2 d 2  v r  v t ev 2 r /v 2 t , (3) where v r = ( ω kΩ) /k is the resonant velocity. Note that the resonance now results when the Doppler shifted frequency equals the cyclotron frequency and that the particle acceleration is associated with a perpendicular rather than parallel electric ﬁeld....
