Abstract

We present a general theoretical framework for discussing the physics of low frequency fluctuation spectra of shear Alfvén and acoustic waves in toroidal plasmas of fusion interest. This framework helps identifying the relevant dynamics and, thus, interpreting experimental observations. We also discuss the roles of such general theoretical framework for verification and validation of numerical simulation codes vs. analytic predictions and experimental results. © 2010 IOP Publishing Ltd.
