Effects of strong E$$times$$B flow on gyrokinetics

Miyato, Naoaki; Scott, B. D.*; Tokuda, Shinji*; Yagi, Masatoshi

Based on the phase space Lagrangian Lie-transform perturbation method and the field theory, a reduced kinetic model with large E$$times$$B flow beyond the standard ordering ($$V_{Etimes B}/v_{th}sim O(rho/L)$$) is constructed by modifying the guiding-centre phase space trans-formation. The model can be regarded as a natural extension of the standard model without flow since the symplectic part of the Lagrangian is the same as the standard one formally. Some aspects of the model are revealed and effects of the flow are discussed in course of comparison with the standard model. The push-forward representation of general particle fluid moment is presented in the subsonic flow case. In sonic flow case, corrections to the reduced quasi-neutrality condition due to the E$$times$$B flow are found by variational derivation of the push-forward representation of particle density.
