The transport equation generally used in computing particle distributions is a one dimensional Fokker-Planck equation with transport terms and loss terms that are independent of each other [Davis and Chang, ; Tverskoy, ; Nakada and Mead, ].

  let east be the x axis and south be the y axis. no force acts on the east direction hence x component of velocity remains unaltered as 40m/s. an acceleration of m/s^2 acts south hence will increase its velocity from 0 m/s in the south direction to a certain value v m/s which is the component in the y axis or south direction given by v = 0 + at = 0 + *8 = 20m/s. Solving the transport equation using a direct Monte-Carlo simulation 1) obtain a master equation of single particle motion fobtain a master equation of single particle motion from Fokker-Planker rom Fokker-Planker equation. Two components: deterministic and stochastic. 2) Make an educated guess of interplanetary turbulence spectrum.

The width of the magnetosphere abreast of Earth, is typically , km (30 Re), and on the night side a long "magnetotail" of stretched field lines extends to great distances (> Re). The high latitude magnetosphere is filled with plasma as the solar wind passes the Earth. It also includes a succinct account of particle acceleration by electric fields, stochastic fields and shock waves, and how reconnection can be important in these mechanisms. Clearly written and highly accessible, this volume serves as an essential introduction for graduate students in solar physics, astrophysics, plasma physics and space science.

(), and T erasawa (). Particle acceleration at jet fronts in the magnetosphere. The jet front, the boundary separating jetting from ambient plasma, is a place where important particle acceleration occurs.

The jet front usually corresponds to a sharp increase of the vertical magnetic field component Bz and is often referred to as dipolarization front.

Two specific regions of the magnetosphere are considered; (1) the magnetospheric tail, the region characterized by a sharp break of magnetic field lines at the neutral sheet, (i.e. lines that close an indefinite but large distance from the Earth) and (2) the magnetospheric core, the region with smooth closed lines of : V.

Specific topics include 1) particle acceleration at flare site, 2) turbulence properties of the solar wind, 3) particle acceleration and transport in the inner heliosphere, 4) particle acceleration at the termination shock and heliosheath, and 5) particle acceleration at supernova remnant shocks.

One basic particle acceleration mechanism operating at shocks is known as diffusive shock acceleration or Fermi acceleration.

1 The workings of this mechanism are illustrated by the example of an elastic ball bouncing between two walls that are moving toward each other. In each collision with a wall, the ball not only changes direction but also increases its speed by a small increment.

Hence, shock acceleration of particles probably plays a minor role here. A small number of models exist which exploit shock acceleration processes in connection with reconnection-beams entering the inner magnetosphere from the tail side and becoming stopped at dipolar field by: 1.

Abstract. This paper is devoted to the problem of particle acceleration in the closest to the Sun Hermean magnetosphere.

We discuss few available observations of energetic particles in Mercury environment made by Mariner in – during Mercury flyby’s and by Helios in upstream of the Hermean bow by: Insights into shock acceleration, particle transport, and unusual source abundances can come from the comparative study of the same physical processes in many different environments.

We will find that a common thread in recent studies of particle acceleration is the importance of the plasma physics of resonant wave-particle interactions.

The Energetic Particles: Acceleration, Composition, and Transport (EPACT) investigation is designed to make comprehensive observations of solar, interplanetary, and galactic particles over wide ranges of charge, mass, energy, and intensity using a combination of 8 different particle tele- scopes.

The magnetosphere is a large region of space where the Earth’s magnetic field controls the motion of charged particles, namely electrons, protons, and other ion species, which form space plasmas. Energetic particle populations are observed in various parts of the magnetosphere [2, 3].Author: Gaetano Zimbardo.

To appreciate the complex structure and evolution of Earth’s home in space, one need only look at the striking image of the extended solar atmosphere, the corona, taken during the Jsolar eclipse (Figureleft panel).Turbulent convection below the Sun’s visible surface.

Trapping of plasma, e.g. of the ring current, also follows the structure of field lines.A particle interacting with this B field experiences a Lorentz Force which is responsible for many of the particle motion in the magnetosphere.

Furthermore, Birkeland currents and heat flow are also channeled by such lines — easy along them, blocked in perpendicular directions. If the charged particle is moving, it would experience force.

This force is equal to QVBsinX where Q is the magnitude of charge, V is it's velocity, X is the angle made by the direction of magnetic field and the direction of motion of charge, a.

Charged particles in a magnetosphere are spontaneously attracted to a planet while increasing their kinetic energy via inward diffusion process. A constraint on particles' micro-scale adiabatic invariants restricts the class of motions available to the system, giving rise to a proper frame on which particle diffusion occurs.

We investigate the inward diffusion process by numerical simulation Author: Y. Ushida, Y. Kawazura, N. Sato, Z. Yoshida.3-D particle-in-cell simulation of magnetotail reconnection.
