Four-dimensional mapping model for two-frequency electron cyclotron resonance heating. (English) Zbl 0625.76124

A model theory for two-frequency electron cyclotron resonance heating is studied using mapping approximation. Due to the spatial separations of the resonance zones the two frequency mapping is four-dimensional. From the two-dimensional approximation of the four dimensional map, follows for using two frequencies: 1) an increase in the range of energy over which heating can occur, 2) a possibility of optimization of this increase. Other effects, arising from the higher dimensionality of the mapping, i.e. those associated with Arnold diffusion, are studied.
